‘Must Do Better!’ How to Teach Boys to Accept your Feedback

7 July | 10:00 am - 10:45 am

For decades, schools have grappled with the most significant barriers to male academic success: a lack of motivation to succeed, poor attitudes to learning and a reluctance to edit, re-draft and improve their work. In this talk, we’ll consider the research picture around teacher feedback, the classic mistakes teachers make when giving boys feedback and how to boost boys’ motivation to improve. Providing practical suggestions to help busy classroom teachers tackle ‘The Boy Question’, this is an essential session for all primary and secondary teachers.
