Boys' and Girls' Literacy: Closing the Gap (2004)

"The Boys' and Girls' Literacy: Closing the Gap" project is unique in that it aims to develop strategies that would particularly have a positive impact on boys' literacy. This holds substantial merit in that the strategies and methodologies selected to address the literacy performance of boys would not disadvantage girls. These strategies included literature circles, male mentors, and providing boy-friendly reading materials. The researchers based these decisions on current research in the fields of literacy and reading; gender and literacy; psychology; and curriculum.
