Girls are now out-performing boys at GCSE level, giving rise to a debate in the media on boys' underachievement. However, often such work has been a 'knee-jerk' response, led by media, not based on solid research. Boys, Girls and Achievement - Addressing the Classroom Issues fills that gap and: *provides a critical overview of the current debate on achievement; *Focuses on interviews with young people and classroom observations to examine how boys and girls see themselves as learners; *analyses the strategies teachers can use to improve the educational achievements of both boys and girls. Becky Francis provides teachers with a thorough analysis of the various ways in which secondary school pupils construct their gender identities in the classroom. The book also discusses methods teachers might use challenge these gender constructions in the classroom and thereby address the 'gender-gap' in achievement.

Die von der EU-Kommission in Auftrag gegebene Studie 'Genderspezifische Unterschiede bei Bildungsresultaten' zeigt u.a., dass die Gendergerechtigkeit in vielen Staaten ein aktuell diskutiertes Thema ist. Oft wird jedoch eine allgemeine Gleichstellungspolitik beklagt. Darüber hinaus scheinen Maßnahmen zur Verringerung geschlechtsspezifischer Leistungsunterschiede sich vor allem auf das Underachievement von Jungen zu konzentrieren. Mit dieser Publikation werden historische Aspekte und aktuelle Trends zu gendergerechter Bildung und Erziehung in 12 ausgewählten europäischen Staaten landesspezifisch aufgezeigt und vergleichend hinterfragt. Die Autoren und Autorinnen bieten mit diesen Länderstudien und der vergleichenden Analyse all jenen Informationen und Anregungen, die sich für Genderfragen im Bildungswesen interessieren.

Gendering Women is an engaging and accessible account of how constructions of femininity fundamentally affect women's mental wellbeing through the life course. Led by women’s life history accounts of growing up and growing older in the north of England, this book shows how experiences of becoming and being a woman – in family life, education, employment, motherhood and situations of violence – both enable and erode self confidence and esteem. The challenges to women’s mental wellbeing cut across age and class differences and have profound impacts on the material conditions of women’s lives throughout the life course. This is in turn a driver of inequality that is often under-recognised in mainstream policy. Based on feminist and ethnographically informed research with over five hundred women Gendering women provides a critical link between gender theory and the lived realities of women’s daily lives and will appeal to students and academics in sociology and social sciences.

As schools are making efforts to include children with emotional and behavioural problems, teachers are having to deal with angry and violent pupils almost every day. Paul Blum's latest book offers a recognisable, blunt and truthful account of widespread and often quite horrendous problems affecting teachers today, and offers practical strategies and solutions. He provides basic day-to-day guidance as well as help for the longer term PSHE planning for schools, based on his own adaptation of the highly successful 'Everyman' project. Issues discussed include a practical survey for teachers on the types of incidents they have to deal with, where anger comes from, the problems that anger causes, and strategies which can be used to help individual pupils. A teacher's inability to deal with difficult pupils can affect their professional and personal life, as well as their ability to successfully teach all their pupils. This essential book offers guidance when they need it most, offering a life-line to teachers in difficult circumstances.

"Boys' achievement has attracted great attention in recent years in many countries. This comprehensive book based on sound research in schools provides practical insights into how the achievement of boysand girls can be raised. It reminds us that it is not all boys or no girlswho underachieve. It demonstrates the respective roles of teaching andlearning, school culture and social factors. No easy answers butexcellent ideas backed by evidence from authoritative, thoroughresearchers with a firm basis in schools."Judy Sebba, Professor of Education, University of Sussex"Teachers will find this book invaluable. It is based on quality researchwhich actually evaluates the impact of the various strategies suggestedfor raising boys' achievement. What is more, in contrast to many of themore 'quick-fix' works in this field, the authors' discussion and analysisis measured and nuanced, and supported by an in-depth understandingof the wealth of theory and research around gender and achievement.It provides a welcome and weighty contribution to an evercontroversial debate."Becky Francis, London Metropolitan UniversityIn this important book, the authors evaluate different approaches and advocate practical, evidence-based strategies, which have the potential to promote boys' as well as girls' achievements. The approaches are discussed within the context of inclusivity, acknowledging the diverse needs and interests of different boys and the invisibility and continuing disadvantage of some girls. The book begins and ends with reflections from students of their own school experiences, and makes practical recommendations for the future.This book draws upon empirical research and work initiated as part of the DfES project on Raising Boys' Achievement. It brings together theoretical and practical issues, and reflects upon the construction of the debate about boys' apparent under-achievement from the perspectives of girls as well as boys. The authors critically explore notions of under-achievement and 'value added', and consider how useful the concept of the 'gender gap' is in advancing the debates.Raising Boys' Achievement in Secondary Schools is key reading for undergraduate and postgraduate Education students, PGCE students, headteachers, senior managers within schools and local education authorities, and policy makers.

The first Genderwatch was published twenty years ago for teachers and school leaders who wanted to do something about discriminatory practices in their schools but were not quite sure what. This entirely new edition, designed to coincide with the Gender Equality Duty legislation coming into force in 2007, will help the same professional group. Times have changed but significant differences in children's schooling experiences persist--depending on who they are. Genderwatch: still watching... focuses on gender difference, also taking into account that boys and girls come from diverse backgrounds, cultures and heritages. The book contains sixty schedules covering all aspects of school life and all phases from preschool to secondary. They examine whole school issues such as: inclusion; what happens in assemblies; working with boys; working with girls; how to ensure that when young people's views are sought all are heard; and the book offers detailed accounts of what might be done in each curriculum subject. Each schedule will help schools address their gender equality issues through reviewing practice, tackling inequalities and monitoring outcomes. Genderwatch: still watching... is essential reading for teachers, school leaders, support staff, governors, inspectors, advisers and consultants-in fact for anyone who wants to improve equality of opportunity in schools. The seventy contributors are educational practitioners and advisers and academics. All are donating their royalties to Book Aid International, a charity that provides books to libraries, hospitals, refugee camps and schools in sub-Saharan Africa and Palestine.

"As a practising youth worker and researcher, I found this book a fascinating and engaging read...It provides a useful analysis and exploration of the classed and gendered 'anti-school' ethic in place presently within many schools, and it will provide a meaningful analysis for academics, policymakers and practitioners and anyone with an interest in gender, education and young people." Fin Cullen, Goldsmiths College, Review in Gender and Education"I would [therefore] urge everyone concerned with what is happening in schools to read this book, with its fascinating data and nuanced arguments." Heather Mendick, London Metropolitan University - Review in British Journal of Educational StudiesThis innovative book looks at how and why girls and boys adopt 'laddish' behaviours in schools. It examines the ways in which students negotiate pressures to be popular and 'cool' in school alongside pressures to perform academically. It also deals with the fears of academic and social failure that influence pupils' school lives and experiences. Drawing extensively on the voices of students in secondary schools, it explores key questions about laddish behaviours, such as: Are girls becoming more laddish and if so, which girls? Do boys and girls have distinctive versions of laddishness? What motivates laddish behaviours? What are the consequences of laddish behaviours for pupils? What are the implications for teachers and schools? The author weaves together key contemporary theories and research on masculinities and femininities with social psychological theories and research on academic motives and goals, in order to understand the complexities of girls' and boys' behaviours.This topical book is key reading for students, academics and researchers in education, sociology and psychology, as well as school teachers and education policy makers.
