Editorial Reviews

Review

"I haven't been this excited about a book in a long time. James combines sound, up-to-date scholarship with effective, practical advice. Whether you teach girls or boys or both, this book is an invaluable resource for classroom strategies and professional growth." (Patricia D. Parisi, Principal 2009-03-03)

"Informed by extensive experience in same-gender school settings, and a good deal of introspection regarding her own tendencies, her suggestions are informative and practical. The author moves from helping students deal with stress, to teaching science and mathematics to girls--making suggestions along the way for what might be helpful in everyday classroom situations." (D. E. Tanner 2010-02-16)

"A worthy successor to James’ groundbreaking book, Teaching the Male Brain. This book complements and builds upon other seminal works rooted in brain-based research. However, the point of view is that of an expert practitioner, and each observation about how girls’ brains work and how girls learn is accompanied by voluminous and practical examples that teachers can use daily in their classrooms. This book should be required reading for all who teach girls in both single-sex and coed settings. Reading it will optimize the experience of girls in America’s classrooms." (Patrick F. Bassett, President 2009-03-18)

"James’ text is a wonderful resource for teachers and parents of girls. The practical suggestions for math and science teachers are an absolute highlight. If educators read and follow the encouraging suggestions in this book, more girls would be empowered to succeed in math and science." (Kate Broadley, Researcher 2009-04-01)

"Teaching the Female Brain offers research-based insights for educators and administers to recognize and develop strategies that better meet the preferences of female learners.You are certain to learn something from this book that will inform how you approach your work as a mathematics educator." (Mark W. Ellis, California State University Fullerton 2011-10-11)
