"After having taken multiple classes through SCT Grad Classes, I would highly recommend this program to other educators. Professor Berg is flexible, understanding, and a great resource when questions arise, and each of the classes that are offered relate directly to specific topics and issues pertinent to education today. The ability to take classes and work at your own pace through SCT is a great bonus for busy educators."

Helping Boys Succeed in School

Print Based Course Printed Course


Many parents and educators today are worried about the education of smart girls, especially in areas like math and science, but what about their male counterparts? According to a U.S. Census Bureau report (2004), 12% of boys drop out of high school, compared to 9% of girls. In addition, the current trend sees more girls enrolling in college than boys. Boys need to be given the tools they need to succeed in school, including strategies for channeling their interests, keeping them actively engaged, increasing their participation in humanities classes like language arts, and dealing with the unique social and emotional problems they face in school. This course combines field-tested strategies and advice with case studies of boys across the nation to give educators a strong guide for ensuring boys' success in school and the future.
