A Great Place for Boys (and All Children)
January 28, 2019
Live as if you were living a second time, and as though you had acted wrongly the first time.
-Victor Frankl

Francis Wardle, in his new book, Oh Boywrites: “There is a large body of knowledge that argues for early childhood programs and elementary schools to provide a variety of multicultural opportunities that match each student’s culture, learning styles, language, and competencies. It is understood that these children need school experiences—activities, curricular content, classroom materials, and adult-child interactions—that provide them with the best possible opportunity to succeed in early childhood and school.

It only makes sense that these school experiences also optimally match their learning styles, behaviors, competencies, and dispositions. 

It is likewise important to ensure that the early education and elementary years are positive experiences for boys—experiences through which they are successful and empowered; experiences that prepare them to resolve both social and academic challenges in later school years; and experiences that teach boys self-efficacy. According to Albert Bandura, self-efficacy is the belief that with a certain amount of effort and persistence, one is capable of executing behaviors successfully like learning specific skills, tasks, or concepts. For children, this is the belief that they can learn under the right circumstances.”

"This is not just a book, it's a story…a story of hope for young boys attending childcare in any type of setting. It's a story that sends a message to our industry that we need a paradigm shift—to our thinking, our training, and our hiring—to recognize the gender imbalance that is putting young boys at great risk of failure. It's a story that urges us as a field to better understand the specific complexities of caring for young boys so that we may fulfill our ultimate promise to provide the highest quality of care possible to all children."
– Jerry Parr, President/CEO Willow Tree Early Education Team

My comment is this: Years ago I received the Exchange and it actually contained articles. The ones I have received recently are advertisements for books that are available for purchase through NAEYC... or advertisements for webinars or business materials...all good, I am sure, but no real articles any longer. Have you just gone to advertising and not printing articles any longer? Am I missing something? I have this particular book on order already. I am a bit disappointed in the direction of these posts. Thank you.
