I Can Learn from You
By

Rating
In I Can Learn from You, Michael Reichert and Richard Hawley - the authors of Reaching Boys, Teaching Boys - set out to probe deeply into the relational dynamics that help boys succeed as learners. Drawing on interviews with students and teachers in thirty-five schools across six countries, they examine the particular ways boys extend and receive empathy - modes of interaction that remain consistent across a wide range of schools, teachers, countries, and cultures. The book shows how teachers can help boys form productive learning relationships and how schools can support the development of teachers' relational capacities. At the heart of the book is the belief that educators must - and can - put relational teaching at the centre of school life.

Reviews

You cannot fool boys in school; they know whether or not you are interested in a real relationship with them. Teachers who are willing to reach out to boys, who can tolerate a little opposition, will produce excited, grateful learners. I wish every teacher in America were required to read "I Can Learn from You" before he or she stepped into a classroom. Our boys would be better off if they did. Michael Thompson, coauthor of "Raising Cain"" To read some pop pundits, boys academic underachievement is best remedied by changing classroom seating, recess, and temperature control. In this level-headed and sensible study, Michael Reichert and Richard Hawley show us the answer is far simpler and far more profound: boys "relationships" with each other, with their teachers, with their sense of themselves are what must be nurtured to enable boys to connect.
