Raising Boys' Achievement explores the causes of boys' underachievement and moves on to suggest tried-and-tested strategies to raise standards of achievement. The book encourages and challenges teachers to devise solutions based on research with their individual boys, and not to rely too heavily on commonly-held broad generalisations. What the book covers Action research in schools: provides practical suggestions which teachers can use in their lessons. Examples of good practice: provides 'real' solutions and case studies to support the planning and implementation of strategies to raise achievement. Ideas for reflection and training: provides stimulus materials and research findings to inform a wide range of school-based activity. The school effectiveness series Raising Boys' Achievement is the sixth book in the school effectiveness series, which focuses on practical and useful ideas for schools and individual teachers. It addresses the issues of whole school improvement and new knowledge about teaching and learning and offers straightforward solutions which teachers can use to make life more rewarding for those they teach.
