Using the latest brain research to explore and explain differences in how boys and girls learn, this informative resource provides early childhood educators tools to make the way they teach and their classrooms more boy friendly. Grounded in findings from the nonprofit child care and early education and youth agency Starting Point’s Boys’ Project, this handbook is designed to help teachers better understand, support, and work with young boys. From an overview of what makes boys tick and the unique needs of African American and Hispanic boys to simple, effective options to involve boys in the early childhood classroom and encourage family engagement and parental participation, it offers practical strategies teachers can implement in even the stickiest situations. The book’s expansive resources section—full of book lists, websites, parent handouts, and support and mentoring organizations—will help teachers take principles and ideas in the book to the next level.
