|aAbigail James, author of the bestselling Teaching the Male Brain, presents this accompanying compilation of middle school language arts and math lesson plans for educators teaching boys. These lessons are based on James' gender research and are applicable for both coed and all male classrooms. Grammar, literacy, algebra, and geometry lesson plans cover the subjects where boys'brains differ the most from their female classmates. These lesson plans offerspecific strategies for improving the subject areas where boys often fall behind in by identifying a common weakness of typical boy learners, describing a strategy for working on this weakness, then providing specific examples of thatstrategy in action.
