Breaking Through Barriers to Boys Achievement

Gary Wilson

Educators have for many years sought to understand why boys underperform in schools and what can be done about it. In Breaking through barriers to boys achievement, Gary Wilson provides the full picture as to why boys of all ages underachieve and what can be done to start solving the problem. He presents the 28 barriers to boys learning, including early language development, laddish culture and lack of male role models. His emphasis is very much on turning out respectable young men who have a caring masculinity.

The second edition of this ground-breaking book includes revised and updated case studies, data and practical tips and advice on how to raise boys achievement. You will find tried-and-tested strategies which will help you to:
- effectively engage boys in the life of the school
- engage boys in the curriculum, with particular emphasis on literacy
- create the right culture for learning
- develop emotional intelligence in boys
- develop self-esteem
- provide opportunities for reflection
- turn the peer police into a positive force for good
- teach in ways that will hit all the right buttons for boys, but will not disadvantage girls

Breaking through barriers to boys achievement provides a practical toolkit that will enable every teacher, department, key stage or school to determine precisely which barriers impinge upon their work with boys and to plan a way forward. It also provides a range of whole-school models for developing effective projects for raising boys achievement.
