Brief Program Description

Boys and girls don’t just mature differently; they learn differently as well. The male brain grows and develops at a different pace, a fact which, when combined with socialization, can significantly impact the way boys learn and process information. Join Dr. Shields to learn practical strategies and techniques for modifying your classroom, programs, and practices to fit boys’ specific school learning and behavioral needs. This is not about creating a whole new curriculum; it is about working with your existing structures and pedagogy to help boys learn and achieve. Observe a real-time panel discussion with a group of diverse, young male students, and learn to better engage in a powerful meaningful way.
