Overview

Have you ever heard the debate over whether boys and girls learn differently? Or perhaps you have thought that they learn differently, given what youíve experienced in the classroom, but wondered if you were imagining it.

Recent research conducted during the current "Golden Age of Neuroscience" provides scientific evidence that boys and girls do indeed think differently. This webinar will focus on the biological and physiological differences that exist between the male and the female brain, and how these differences manifest themselves in the classroom. Participants will gain new perspectives about their students, as well as themselves as teachers.

**The second webinar in this series, Boys and Girls Learn Differently! Part 2, covers an innovative set of strategies that can be applied to any curriculum to increase teacher effectiveness and improve student performance - whether the students are boys or girls.

Like any difference within the classroom, it is important for teachers to take into consideration possible learning differences caused by gender.
