This book is very informative, for both parents and teachers of children of all ages from kindergarden to the high school. Although researched and written in America, it is relevant to the UK and looks at all spheres of learning. It looks at brain based influences on gender and how boys and girls learn differently for physical reasons due to brain development and hormones. It offers advice on how an effective classroom should be adopted to bring the best out in children, offering advice regarding challenging behaviour, dietary recommendations, discipline, SEN, emotional stress issues and the use of mentors to name a few of the many issues covered. It is an easy to read book that would be helpful for NQT's, parents, experienced teachers and those who write educational policys.
