Classroom educators, researchers, and consultants James, Allison, and McKenzie draw on their extensive experiences teaching science (James), math (Allison), and language arts (McKenzie) in single-gender settings to create a practical text for upper elementary and secondary classroom teachers. The text includes a concise overview of experiential learners and the structural, sensory, and cognitive differences between male and female brains, followed by 22 adaptable lesson plans for teaching math, 25 language arts lesson plans, 17 science lesson plans, and ten lessons for teaching study strategies to active learners. Each lesson plan includes a suggested grade level for students who will benefit from the activity, the purpose, the amount of time needed to the activity, a list of materials, step-by-step procedures, and suggested evaluation. No subject index has been provided.
