Designing Gender Appropriate Experiences for Boys that Guide Positive Behavior (Webinar)
August 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm| Free
Presented by: Jerry Parr and Ron Blatz
Young boys, as a group, generally struggle more than girls in early childhood and elementary programs. This is not due primarily to bad behavior, but to a “fundamental mismatch between how most young boys develop, grow, and learn, and the kinds of expectations, outcomes, activities, and discipline approaches used in programs during the early years.” (Oh Boy! F Wardle, 2018) This webinar presented by early childhood experts, Jerry Parr and Ron Blatz, is aimed at improving outcomes and creating lifelong success stories for young boys and the educators who work with them.
Join this dynamic webinar to learn more about the pedagogical underpinnings that support changing the way we teach young boys. You will learn to identify elements of your program that may be frustrating to young boys, and learning approaches that take advantage of the strengths boys bring to the classroom.
This webinar will be loosely based on Francis’ Wardle’s new book, “Oh Boy! Strategies for Teaching Boys in Early Childhood” (Exchange Press, 2018).
