More than 60,000 teachers have been trained in the Institute’s programs and interventions, from more than 2,000 schools, with some of those schools becoming “GI Model Schools.” We provide the critical training missing from most post-secondary education related to how boys and girls learn differently.
Data Matters: When addressing data and gaps associated with race, socioeconomic status and/or language background, it is critical to examine the role gender plays in patterns of achievement, classroom management, and student engagement. This training is not a new curriculum. Its holistic nature grows from its fidelity to all three fundamental areas of child development: nature, nurture, and culture. It builds understanding of boys and girls in all settings: curricular, extra-curricular, and behavioral areas.
