Boys and Girls Learn Differently! A Guide for Teachers and Parents

By: Michael Gurian, Patricia Henley, Terry Trueman

Educator and author Gurian (The Wonder of Boys) and his co-writers argue that from preschool to high school, brain differences between the sexes call for different teaching strategies. While it's widely accepted that, in general, boys do better in math and girls in language, the authors claim that, until recently, society has taken the politically correct but scientifically inaccurate classroom view that children of both genders learn best in an "androgynous classroom." Presenting a detailed picture of boys' and girls' neurological, chemical and hormonal disparities, the authors explain how those differences affect learning.

Overcoming Dyslexia: A New and Complete Science-Based Program for Reading Problems at Any Level (Paperback)

~ Sally Shaywitz M.D. (Author)

From Publishers Weekly

Yale neuroscientist Shaywitz demystifies the roots of dyslexia (a neurologically based reading difficulty affecting one in five children) and offers parents and educators hope that children with reading problems can be helped. Shaywitz delves deeply into how dyslexia occurs, explaining that magnetic resonance imaging has helped scientists trace the disability to a weakness in the language system at the phonological level. According to Shaywitz, science now has clear evidence that the brain of the dyslexic reader is activated in a different area than that of the nonimpaired reader. Interestingly, the dyslexic reader may be strong in reasoning, problem solving and critical thinking, but invariably lacks phonemic awareness-the ability to break words apart into distinct sounds-which is critical in order to crack the reading code. The good news, Shaywitz claims, is that with the use of effective training programs, the brain can be rewired and dyslexic children can learn to read. She walks parents through ways to help children develop phonemic awareness, become fluent readers, and exercise the area of the brain essential for reading success. Early diagnosis and effective treatment, the author claims, are of utmost importance, although even older readers can learn to read skillfully with proper intervention. Shaywitz's groundbreaking work builds an important bridge from the laboratory to the home and classroom. 34 line drawings and graphs

Dyslexia explained and treated by the codirector of the Yale Center for the Study of Learning.

Differentiating Instruction for Students With Learning Disabilities: Best Teaching Practices for General and Special Educators (Paperback)

~ William N. (Neil) Bender (Author)

Review

"A cornucopia of research-based, teacher-tested strategies that promise to engage students with a wide range of abilities such as we find in today's classrooms. The tips, strategies, and ideas will help teachers solve one of their most perplexing problems: raising the academic performance of students with learning difficulties. This book is a must-have for your teacher toolbox." (Jim Grant, Executive Director )

"In light of the rules and changes mandated by No Child Left Behind, the book certainly makes a valuable contribution to the field. NCLB has resulted in ever increasing numbers of students with learning disabilities being educated in the general education classroom. For these students to reach their full potential, teachers must be able to use multiple avenues to reach, teach, and assess students." (Patricia McCoy DeLancey, Special Educator )

"The book's format is user-friendly, a definite plus for teachers who are short on time and are looking for ways to enhance their teaching." (Eloisa E. Alfonso, Exceptional Student Educator )

"William Bender has provided a strong basis for developing the understanding of differentiating instruction that can be used by new and experienced teachers in general and special education." (David M. Sable, Director of Special Education )

"Both general and special education teachers and college-level collections catering to them will find this second edition essential." (California Bookwatch, October 2007 )

Aligned with changes prescribed by IDEIA and federal regulations, this edition provides additional information on brain research, universal design for learning, graphic organizers, and much more.
