In this inspirational, practical, and humorous presentation, renowned educator and
New York Times bestselling author Michael Gurian - The Minds of Boys, The Wonder of Girls, Boys and Girls Learn Differently, Saving Our Sons - focuses on helping children of all ages succeed in school and life. Because boys and girls experience their home and school life differently, Michael explores how the minds of boys and girls develop distinctly—and how parents and educators can care for and support the needs of both daughters and sons.
Based on twenty-five years of research in brain science, education, and practical parenting, this keynote traces how a learning mind grows, how girls and boys learn and grow differently, how acculturation influences boys and girls, and how crucial school success has become to life success. Michael brings to life not only the developmental science of girls’ and boys’ minds, but practical methods by which to raise and educate those minds. Michael also focuses on learning and life difficulties that boys and girls suffer as distinct groups.
