This research generates scores of practical tips, in addition to the one about using narrative tension or action to hook boys on reading. Others include setting different temperatures (boys prefer chillier classrooms), encouraging girls to be a little more noisy, allowing boys to move around more, and being tolerant of boys who want to write about things such as space warfare.
I'm not looking at it as a way to deepen the problems in education or society, but as a way to reach more students in a better manner.
In Caddo Parish Schools, we have a huge problem with our middle schoolers. It comes to a point when the number of 16 year old eighth graders out-way the "should-be" thirteen year olds, and then they simply drop out. Would single sexed schools help to prevent this type of problem?
That sounds like a good idea. Heck I would still be thinking of them in the next room. Now days text messaging is rampant.
