The Lovereading4Kids comment

The authors of this excellent new book have an immense track record of work in the education of young boys. This book will help parents help boys to become strong, competent learners from an early age, it will dispel the myths about ‘under-achievement’, challenge stereotypical views of gender, and recognise the unique strengths and abilities of young boys.

Synopsis

The Cleverness of Boys by Ros Bayley, Sally Featherstone

The differences between boys and girls, in development and attitude to learning are well documented, and a formalised early curriculum emphasises these differences. The abilities of most girls to meet goals for learning at an earlier age may result in a tendency to focus on trying to teach boys to learn like girls, instead of recognising their unique gifts and abilities. If we are to help boys to become strong, competent learners from an early age, we must resist the temptation to feel sorry for them. We must dispel the myths about 'under-achievement', challenge stereotypical views of gender, and recognise the unique strengths and abilities of young boys.
