Boys are falling behind in many measures of academic success, particularly when it comes to reading and writing. National and state data consistently rank boys behind girls in terms of class grades and standardized reading test scores.  Reading and writing teachers are pivotal in turning the tides so that boys experience more success in the language arts classroom. Greater success means fewer negative behavior incidents, and this is a win for all. This presentation explores the literature about how boys learn, how they've fallen behind, and what specific strategies English teachers can use now to positively impact their male students.
