Summary "Boys' under-achievement is grabbing headlines in the education debate, and it has never been more important to solve the problem. This book offers clear and practical strategies to headteachers, classroom teachers and other professionals for ways to address the issue. Founded on the very latest school-based research, it provides practical and proven ways of managing the problem which are in the scope of all teachers and heads - in all phases of education."--BOOK JACKET. "The book looks at reasons for boys' under-achievement, ways of adapting teaching styles to maximise learning gains for boys ... and girls, guidance on how to plan successful pyramid, whole school and classroom approaches, practical strategies for subject leaders and teachers, examples of successful case studies, and how to introduce ideas through professional development."--BOOK JACKET
