Benefits of All Boy and All Girl Classrooms

How can an all boy classroom help boys?

  • By creating a “boy-friendly” environment
  • By allowing teachers to focus on delivering curriculum with boy-friendly strategies, including literacy
  • By creating a “safe” place for boys to ask questions they are reluctant to ask in a co-ed environment
  • By giving boys a peer environment that allows them to support each other’s efforts
  • By making school a place boys see as engaging, challenging and even fun
  • By breaking down gender stereotypes

¿Cómo pueden las aulas de un solo género ayudar a los niños?

  • Creando un ambiente "amigable para los niños"
  • Al permitir que los maestros se centren en ofrecer un currículo con estrategias amigables para los niños, incluida la alfabetización
  • Al crear un lugar "seguro" para que los niños hagan preguntas, se muestran reacios a hacer preguntas en un entorno mixto
  • Al brindarles a los niños un ambiente de pares que les permita apoyar los esfuerzos de los demás
  •  Al eliminar la distracción de las niñas cuando la pubertad envía las hormonas a una sobrecarga.
  • Al romper los estereotipos de género.
