Boys Don't Read, Except When They Do

"Baby boys tend to develop speech about a month or two later than girls" This is not why we have so many problems with boys and literacy! When generaliza­tions become the rule of pedagogica­l theory we lower expectatio­ns. "Boy are good at math" "Girls are good at reading and writing" "Boys are good at science" If we expect girls or boys to develop academic skills slower or later we will make it happen! The brains of all boys and girls are amazingly capable when you believe in ability and expect great things.
