These time-tested communication strategies help get the best out of boys. The tips for tackling difficult behaviour should result in more classroom co-operation and learning so that everyone benefits. Lucinda Neall works with teachers and schools to identify what helps boys to learn. The result is this handbook, packed full of techniques, examples and tips. Topics include: affirming and channelling boys' energy so you can get them on your side; improving boys' emotional literacy so they gain in confidence and self-awareness; using boundaries and appropriate discipline to calm classes; how to encourage boys so they can be at their best; getting boys to co-operate without nagging or shouting; and engaging boys with humour and playfulness.
