Inhaltsangabe: Michael Gurian's blockbuster bestseller The Wonder of Boys is the bible for mothers, fathers, and educators on how to understand and raise boys. It has sold over 400,000 copies, been translated into 17 languages, and sells over 25,000 every year, which is more than any other book on boys in history. To follow up on this first book, which launched the boy's movement, he has now written this revolutionary new book which confronts what he and a lot of other parents and teachers in this country truly believe to be a "boy's crisis".
Here are the facts:
Gurian has the answer in this enormously fascinating and practical book which shows parents and teachers how to help boys overcome their current classroom obstacles by helping to create the proper learning environment, understand how to help boys work with their unique natural gifts, nurture and expand every bit of their potential, and enabling them to succeed in life the way they ought to.
Gurian presents a whole new way of solving the problem based on the success of his program in schools across the country, the latest research and application of neuro-biological research on how boys' brains actually work and how they can learn very well if they're properly taught.
Anyone who cares about the future of our boys must read this book.
Klappentext: The Key to Unlocking the Minds of Boys
There's a crisis in our society that's been developing for years. This crisis has captured the attention of everyone from the parent at the playground to the teacher in your neighborhood classroom to First Lady Laura Bush in the White House. Too many of our boys and young men are falling behind in school and life. Boys receive the majority of the Ds and Fs given all students, and they create 90 percent of classroom discipline problems. Eighty percent of all high school dropouts are boys, millions of American boys are on Ritalin and other drugs, three out of four learning-disabled students are boys, and colleges are struggling to retain male students. This startling trend is not only bad for boys but also for parents, communities, and for humanity's future in general.
"Wonderfully readable, The Minds of Boys fills a great void for parents and educators by offering practical ways to change the developmental course for boys at risk. Gurian and Stevens show us that we don't have to surrender our boys to depression or school failure: an essential piece of school reform!"
?Robin Karr-Morse, author, Ghosts from the Nursery
"Michael Gurian and Kathy Stevens pull the pieces together in The Minds of Boys, including the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive needs of boys. This is a must-read for educators from preschool through young adulthood and for any parent or grandparent who is raising a boy. This book is well researched, offering concrete ways to help our boys develop and flourish in and out of school."
?Dr. Paul D. Slocumb, author, Hear Our Cry: Boys in Crisis
"The Minds of Boys is an excellent read. I found it enlightening not only as a neuroscientist but also as the mother of a young boy. It has absolutely changed the way that I think about boys (and men) and the ways in which they express their enthusiasm for life."
?Tracey J. Shors, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, Center for Collaborative Neuroscience, Rutgers University
