Teaching Boys

Author(s): Martin Mills


Boys' education continues to be a focus of public controversy and anxiety among teachers. Concern about boys' general educational under-achievement and the impact this under-achievement has on the boys themselves, as well as on the broader society, continues to fuel disagreement and debate on the best approach to take in response. Teaching Boysprovides a framework for developing practical and sustainable ways to improve boys' education. Highlighting the key research-based understandings of gender, masculinity and pedagogy, the book demonstrates how what teachers doin the classroom can enable - or constrain - boys' academic and social outcomes. With detailed case studies, Keddie & Mills outline a range of practical classroom strategies that will assist teachers to meet the challenge of teaching boys, without neglecting the girls in the process.
