Successful Single-Sex Classrooms: A Practical Guide to Teaching Boys and Girls Separatelyby Michael Gurian, Kathy Stevens, Gurian, Peggy Daniels
This book is an essential resource for educators who are teaching or leading schools with single-gender classes, whether they're in public, private, or Catholic schools. It is a "soup-to-nuts" guide, covering everything from curriculum planning and classroom design to school policies and parent-teacher communication. Whether contemplating this new educational trend, or already working within one of the 12,000 single-gender schools, this practical guide shows educators how they can make the most of a unique educational opportunity.
Positioned at the forefront of brain-based learning, Michael Gurian's work translates and distills the latest scientific research into key points which can be immediately integrated into an educator's existing practice. The research underlines the importance of single-sex learning, and supports the creation and implementation of new strategies for accommodating the brain differences of boys and girls - at both the school and classroom level.

It is good to have this balanced approach to considering the value of single-sex classrooms as the option gains popular awareness and possible acceptance as a panacea for problems we now face in our schools. I found the presentation of theory and research to be fair and reasoned. I think the content is well presented for easy understanding and application, both for those entering or enlarging the alternative structure of classroom or school and those just now beginning consideration of the option. The substantial involvement of practicing professionals from the Gurian Institute helped me approach the subject with confidence and knowledge that suggestions were reality-based and results-oriented.
