            There is a significant problem in our schools: too many boys are struggling. The list of things to concern teachers is long. Disappointing academic results, a lack of interest in studying, higher exclusion rates, increasing mental health issues, sexist attitudes, an inability to ...express emotions... Traditional ideas about masculinity are having a negative impact, not only on males, but females too. In this ground-breaking book, Matt Pinkett and Mark Roberts argue that schools must rethink their efforts to get boys back on track. Boys Don't Try? examines the research around key topics such as anxiety and achievement, behaviour and bullying, schoolwork and self-esteem. It encourages the reader to reflect on how they define masculinity and consider what we want for boys in our schools. Offering practical quick wins, as well as long-term strategies to help boys become happier and achieve greater academic success, the book: offers ways to avoid problematic behaviour by boys and tips to help teachers address poor behaviour when it happens highlights key areas of pastoral care that need to be recognised by schools exposes how popular approaches to `engaging' boys are actually misguided and damaging details how issues like disadvantage, relationships, violence, peer pressure and pornography affect boys' perceptions of masculinity and how teachers can challenge these With an easy-to-navigate three-part structure for each chapter, setting out the stories, key research and practical solutions, this is essential reading for all classroom teachers and school leaders who are keen to ensure male students enjoy the same success as girls.

            So many parents are buying the government line about standardised testing of students and programs like NAPLAN and MySchool, which somehow satisfy the 'consumer' in many people as they think they are getting results because of ranking and comparisons. But what these parents don't... seem to realise is what those new ways of assessing students' skills are actually doing to their kids' ability to learn the crucial life skills and appreciation for learning that has thus far been the primary aim of teaching. In this funny, heartfelt and passionate series of letters to the Mothers and Fathers of Australia, Gabbie Stroud makes a plea to all parents to understand the fundamental changes to the way their children are being taught, and the results of such a process on the development of future generations. She wants parents to understand their responsibility as primary educators and to appreciate the benefits to their kids of the life-long benefits that committed and dedicated teachers can bring to them.

            How We Learn: The New Science of Education and the Brain

            In today's technological society, with an unprecedented amount of information at our fingertips, learning plays a more central role than ever. In How We Learn, Stanislas Dehaene decodes its biological mechanisms, delving into the neuronal, synaptic, and molecular processes taking... place in the brain. He explains why youth is such a sensitive period, during which brain plasticity is maximal, but also assures us that our abilities continue into adulthood, and that we can enhance our learning and memory at any age. We can all learn to learn by taking maximal advantage of the four pillars of the brain's learning algorithm- attention, active engagement, error feedback, and consolidation. The human brain is an extraordinary machine. Its ability to process information and adapt to circumstances by reprogramming itself is unparalleled, and it remains the best source of inspiration for recent developments in artificial intelligence. The exciting advancements in A.I. of the last twenty years reveal just as much about our remarkable abilities as they do about the potential of machines. How We Learn finds the boundary of computer science, neurobiology, and cognitive psychology to explain how learning really works and how to make the best use of the brain's learning algorithms, in our schools and universities as well as in everyday life.

            This book explores how corporations fund, devise and implement various programmes in schools as `part of the solution' to childhood obesity. Drawing on data from across the globe, it shows how children, teachers, school leaders and external providers (both public and private), un...derstand and experience `sponsored' programmes and resources that aim to improve children's health and encourage `healthy' consumption of corporate products. Challenging the idea that the corporate `war' against childhood obesity is normal, necessary, or harmless, this book exposes healthy lifestyles education as a form of mis-education that constrains what students learn about health, corporations and consumption.

            This volume explores conceptualizations of indigeneity and the ways that indigenous philosophies can and should inform educational policy and practice. Beginning with questions and philosophies of indigeneity itself, the volume then covers the indigenous philosophies and practice...s of a range of communities-including Sami, Maori, Walpiri, Navajo and Kokama peoples. Chapter authors examine how these different ideals can inform and create meaningful educational experiences for communities that reflect indigenous ways of life. By applying them in informing a philosophy of education that is particular and relevant to a given indigenous community, this study aims to help policy makers and educational practitioners create meaningful educational experiences.
