Raising boys' achievement in Art & Design

This course is for anyone wishing to raise the achievements of boys and ‘close the gap’ between the attainment of boys and girls in the art class.

 

 

The course will address some of the myths surrounding the gender generalisations whilst looking at in depth research in this area and how you can use this to improve the attainment of boys in their art studies. You will look at specific schemes of work, class tasks and targeted intervention strategies to motivate boys not alienate them.
You will also look at ways to develop your current projects and tasks such as the use of sketchbooks, analytical tasks, drawing skills, homework activities and support methods. On top of this, guidance will be given to help plan longer term and imbed ‘boy friendly’ teaching and learning into your practice.

 

 

This course is specifically aimed at the art curriculum. You will explore practical techniques that can be integrated into existing schemes of work, immediately enabling your boys to achieve results that match those of girls. Overall this course will improve your curriculum design to help raise the achievement of boys in their art and design studies.
