Gender-based classrooms are a researched-based process of educating students. Students have an opportunity to learn concepts with students with similar interest. There are schools of research thought that suggest that boys and girls learn in different styles. Our goal as a school is to always provide students with research-based strategies of a variety of ways to increase student achievement and to reach ALL students regardless of gender, race, grade-level or skill-level. We will explore in 2014-2015 opportunities to pair students up with like peers for optimum learning opportunities. Our initial focus will extend to third-fifth graders. They will be able to provide the much needed documented data, and oral responses, concerning how the process is working. We will keep you posted of our progress.
