Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce to co-host Retail Marijuana Forum
NLS Educational Speaker Series | Ralph Fletcher
Interactive workshop for educators and administrators RSVP 508-228-0427 In his workshop, Fletcher will draw upon his years of experience as teacher mentor, children's book author, and father of four boys. The talk, title and theme of his presentation is not meant to advocate for the promotion of the interests of boys at the expense of girls. Instead, he will ask teachers to consider the well-researched ‘gender achievement gap’ in education and the data that demonstrates male students falling behind female students across the grades and subjects. He will ask teachers to imagine the writing classroom from a boy's perspective and consider specific steps they might take to create stimulating classrooms for boys.
