Michael Gurian's "Boys and Girls Learn Differently" explains the biological factors behind male/female learning, what these differences consist of at various developmental stages and most importantly, how this information can be used to build a student's self-esteem and facilitate learning. Gurian points out that there are no hard and fast "gender rules," but that brain-based research indicates certain tendencies. For eample, he writes, "Boys tend to be deductive in their conceptualizations?girls tend to favor inductive thinking." Gurian outlines what he calls the "ultimate" learning environment for both boys and girls from preschool through high school. He reminds us what it is like to be a sensitive nine-year-old to a turbulent teen and points out that by understanding what are children are going through at different stages in their lives, adults can more effectively help them achieve in school?
