The Gurian Institute provides you with the strategies and tools you need to provide proactive gender-based instruction.
That means most boys are highly engaged and succeed when given challenges coupled with active lessons and relevant topics.
That means girls thrive when lessons have a relational component and they can collaborate and discuss.
What this unique brain-based instruction provides is that both genders thrive in their learning “comfort zone” but are also stretched to enhance their capacities into less familiar areas.
When instruction is gender-based, both genders thrive and teachers have more time for academics and less need to manage behavior and social dynamics. A win for all!
