Gender Education Expert Abigail James PhD Launches New Website
Abigail Norfleet James PhD, internationally-renowned expert on gender-based education and the neuroscience of learning, launches her new website, announces her speaking schedule, and the forthcoming "A User’s Guide to Boys"
The new site includes social tools for sharing on Facebook, as well as direct connections to her books, Teaching the Male Brain: How Boys Think, Feel & Learn in School(ForeWord Magazine Education Book of the Year in 2007), Teaching the Female Brain: How Girls Learn Math & Science, and Active Lessons for Active Brains: Teaching Boys & Other Experiential Learners on both Amazon and Facebook.
In addition, Dr. James shares the title of her next book, A User’s Guide to Boys: Helping Your Sons Thrive at Home, at School & in Life. This is Dr. James’ first book specifically crafted for parents – her previous books were written for teachers, but became popular with parents seeking ways to help their children become better students. A User’s Guide to Boys is in final draft, and book proposals are being sent to publishers interested in adding this title – which will be a bestseller – to their list.
Dr. James’ speaking calendar is also on the new site, giving educational institutions and communities interested in booking her to speak at education and parenting-related events a way to both see her current booked dates, and reserve dates for Dr. James to present at their events.
Current 2011 booked dates include a series of visits to schools throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as Dr. James’ presentation a the 2011 ACSD convention in San Francisco, Gendered Education: How to teach girls and boys effectively in the same classroom.
