and Girls Learn Differently! A Guide for Teachers and Parents.
Author: Michael Gurian.
Assignment: Review major thesis and significant points of the above book. Please be sure to include how you will use some of the relevant points in the book when counseling clients, particularly school aged boys
Chapter 1 covering gender in the brain- Please briefly discuss the key developmental and structural differences between boys
Chapters 4 & 5 discuss Character Education- please make inferences on how my being a special education teacher makes character education and all of its components particularly important to me. I encourage girls AND boys
to be empathetic and expect all my students to be treated with respect and value everyones idiosyncracies.
Please be sure to add (wherever you think it is most relevant) that I have 12 year old twins (1 boy
/1 girl) and have witnessed learning style differences between the two of them. My son is definitely dominant in logical-mathematical reasoning. I have noticed differences in the ways my daughter and son process emotion. My daughter takes things much more personally than my son does! Feel free to add one or two more likely differences.
Don't hesitate to contact me with ANY questions and or concerns anytime!:)
