To help boys experience success, first male and female students to clearly see the difference between the objective -
Can not be ignored, “men and women are different”
Zhong Wenfang (Shanghai Normal University)
Successful experience to help boys, has become a common face of new problems. brain research makes people more aware of different girls and boys, and children for this difference between men and women the right to education and guidance.
School age, boys experience more “failure”
Course of activities in the kindergarten, boys and girls, gender differences are not very clear. However, after entering primary school, learning content and learning has undergone a fundamental change, differences between boys and girls becoming more prominent, many existing school practices and concepts are often advantages in favor of girls development and play, advantage of boys are not playing, and often makes the boys experience many failures.
This is due to the growth of the same age children in school and there was a contradiction between the timetable. starting from the fetus, the brain development of boys is significantly higher than girls in slow speed. is what we commonly call “boys than girls and later fails to grasp.” Although boys and girls in preschool are in brain state of rapid change and development, the maturity schedule of its own is not the same, boys brain brains mature more slowly than girls, about to be late 1 years. This is also a 6-year-old school, girl’s brain to learn a whole may have been written with the knowledge base, the boy’s brain has not developed to this point.
In addition to the brain mature slower than girls outside, boys, some of the nervous system control of fine motor development later than girls. such boys than girls in the general development of finger nerves late, to the same six-year-old boys and girls are learning to write, boy holding a pencil and write beautiful words are more difficult.
These developmental differences in the timetable makes the boys are seen as not serious, or as clumsy or slow, can not be successful experience, has continued to experience failure and criticism, this negative evaluation is easier for them to hate from the start the school year.
Classroom discipline, to make a good dynamic nature of depressed boys
A very different kindergartens and primary schools is “discipline.” kindergarten teachers of children can tolerate a good move, see it as a lively performance. and once to the school, quietly sitting in a classroom lecture was seen as natural, must do things, NAC will face this change and adjustment. difference between girls and boys are natural, the brain and the body of their respective endocrine and other factors. In contrast, most girls learn to accept more easily and quietly, while most boy on the contrary, activities they prefer, hands, and feet, dynamic body. Therefore, boys in this adjustment process is particularly difficult.
Standard answer, so the boy thought to be suppressed active
Thinking that the boys are active, the common advantage, however, active thinking does not make the boys succeed in learning experience. some teachers honestly say that teaching in the open public hours, thinking they are more like those active boy, teachers, some of the issues challenging for boys, easy to stimulate the thinking of the operation, some novel, contrary to adults expected answer, the teacher lectures often win acclaim. However, those in the classroom teaching is commendable, active thinking, often complete failure in examinations. Standard answer of unique, made the boys “Imagine days open” brainstorms all into error, or failure ultimately experienced. many high school boys lost confidence in language learning, because no matter how hard they try, results would not be much increased, reading comprehension and the teacher announced the answer although the answer to the same meaning, but the expression is different can only be considered wrong.
Physiological differences, widening the gap between boys and girls learning
The human brain composed by the left and right hemispheres, left and right cerebral hemispheres perform their duties, a cerebral hemisphere responsible for language and reasoning, and the other cerebral hemisphere is responsible for movement, feelings and space-time positioning. the links between the two brain hemispheres mainly composed of nerve fibers, the nerve fibers called the corpus callosum, it is the left side of the brain important connection between the channels.
Brain Research found that, boys less than the volume of the corpus callosum corpus callosum size girls, which makes about half of boys than girls, the link between brain. learning activities during the same time, girls tend to mobilize the participation of the left and right hemisphere, while boys tend to only use the side of the cerebral hemispheres to operate and think. this brain structure differences, is probably caused by differences between boys and girls, a major source of learning.
“Save the Boys”, countries have to act
The face of gender differences, teachers should actively respond to, and not let matters drift. teachers can work is to understand the behavior of boys the same time, projects in the weak boys give more for practice and guidance, different incentives for the language to help them successful experience.
In the United States, the Government has undertaken to “save the boy,” the planning, analysis pointed out that “boys off after” many reasons, in addition to including the lack of parental care, lack of male teachers and the high fat content ( can lead to children hyperactivity and inattention) and other reasons in addition, boy is also the reason behind the different growth rate of girls and boys, body, different from other brain structures. American education experts have pointed out, educators should focus on helping boys to reduce the feeling out of tune in the class, attention to the boy’s feelings in the world, so the boy recognized. Some experts are studying more in line with the characteristics of different gender child development, learning new methods, such as the study focused on solving problems, not just the written exam.
In Australia, from the 20th century, 90 years, boys school has been rendered significantly behind girls academically, and the gap increased gradually. Therefore, implementation of Australian society “as the boys struggle take successful” operation, start-up “boys education model schools”, to help boys succeed and develop.
