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 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. **The first webinar in this series, Boys and Girls Learn Differently! Part 1, focuses on the biological and physiological differences that exist between the male and the female brain, and how these differences manifest themselves in the classroom.

Nice work
This was a great presentation, as I stated in part 1 I'm very interested in sesing the difference on how the brain is wired. I am also a stron g believer that kids should have both PE and recess also. I loved the idea of the standing desk also especially for students who might have adhd, this gives their body more freedom to move around. Thouroughly enjoyed this presentation.
Excited information! Very helpful both teachers administrators and parents

Love some of the examples - ok for boys to write about boogers, farts etc. Whatever gets them writing.

Also loved examples of letting them move. All of my desks have figety feet bands on them. I'm good with kids standing & moving too as long as not distracting others.
