  1. Educating and Raising Boys

    Modern education is failing our boys. Educating and raising boys challenges society’s war on boys and boyishness and encourages educators and parents to expand their understanding of the male brain to better support the boys in their lives. By examining the behaviour of boys from a neuroscientific standpoint and how the hardwiring in their brains influences the way they learn, author Michael Nagel challenges readers to reassess how we currently engage with boys physically, academically, emotionally and spiritually. Rather than expect boys to change, readers will learn how to best adapt their own behaviour to ensure they are allowing boys to flourish.

  2. Inspiring Student Empowerment: Moving Beyond Engagement, Refining Differentiation

    Searching for the golden ticket to teaching and learning? You won’t find one here - you’ll find many. You’ll find the right one for you. A one-size-fits-all approach to teaching doesn’t work. Empowering students through personalised learning does. Far from being another teaching fad, empowering students through personalised learning can increase equity, encourage self-directed learning and improve outcomes for all students. Inspiring student empowerment shows you how to out this vision into practice with strategies, frameworks, examples, suggestions, templates and tools. Each chapter has discussion questions and a link to a video where the author shares more information for reflection and further exploration.
