This unit discusses the influence of gender on attitudes to schooling in general and the development of literacy in particular. While working through it, you will be asked to think carefully about the way in which society conveys its messages about what it means to be a boy or a girl and some strategies that you might adopt for ensuring that all pupils are encouraged to develop effective learning skills, irrespective of their gender.
