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.

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.

Within the context of empirical research undertaken by the authors during the course of a 4-year research and intervention project on Raising Boys’ Achievement, the book will focus on approaches that are successful in raising achievement for boys, and the reasons for that success. It will explore the whole aspect of boys’ achievement, and look at how primary schools are addressing the issue, and the processes involved in schools working collaboratively and voluntarily to share good practice. Case study material will be used to illustrate the different contexts in which the strategies have been studied, and of great importance is the incorporation of boys’ and girls’ own perspectives on their educational experiences.

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.
