There are undoubtedly many differences between boys and girls. They play differently, they communicate differently, they act differently, and they like different things. But arguably one of the biggest differences between boys and girls is the way they learn. As a parent or educator, understanding the way children learn is crucial to promoting their academic success. All kids are different, but looking at what some psychological studies have found can help us to get a general understanding about the differences between boys and girls in the classroom.


So how are boys' and girls' methods of learning different from one another and what can you do to cater to their needs? Read on
