Boys Writing Flyers

These flyers are from the National Strategies and Standards website in the U.K. They speak directly to how boys learn and write. Here are the four flyers:

1. Talk for Writing
2. Visual Texts
3. Purpose and Audience
4. Feedback on Learning

I've been starting my boys writing workshops lately with reference to these four writing flyers. I find it starts the discussion about teaching boys differently. We need to address the needs of boys if they are to become successful.

  1. I will definitely be using these resources this summer. I am teaching a group of 20 boys using Project Based Learning. I shared your blog with the director of the camp so that the counselors can also get some information on how to best teach them.
