"Ready or Not: The Life And Development of Boys in and out of School" Boston Public Schools Discussion on Nov. 14
On Wednesday, November 14th, please join us for the TECPA Program, "Ready or Not...The Life And Development of Boys in And out of School," Presented by Ben Russell, Sr. Program Director, Literacy & Curriculum Design (Pk-5), Boston Public Schools.
Have you ever thought that the way we attempt to educate our young boys may be the cause of their academic and social frustration? Together we’ll engage in a conversation about the development of boys and how we can better support them in our classrooms. If you’ve ever had a boy that left you guessing, then this is the program for you!
