Hello Everyone (especially those of you with sons),
Jill and I attended a very informative workshop on Friday given by William Maier of Lexington Montessori. He spoke about the current issues that boys are facing in education and in life and offered many strategies on creating boy friendly classrooms – this is often difficult for female teachers. This was an eye opening lecture for me and for many other attendees. I’d love to chat with anyone who is interested about this lecture. Please visit my new “Book List” page on this blog to see some book recommendations regarding this topic.
We will explore this topic during our new monthly book group, which will kick off in November. Just a note (very far in advance): The author of Raising Cain and other books about boys, Michael Thompson will be speaking at the Friends School of Portland in May. It might seem far off, but it will be here before you know it!
