Improving the Behaviour and Engagement of Boys

Boys across the world are feeling disengaged and excluded in the classroom. It’s time to take action and address this crisis together.

Introducing the +M Foundation’s Workshop: Improving the Behaviour and Engagement of Boys.

This event is more than a conference; it’s a comprehensive training program aimed at empowering you with practical skills to enhance boys’ engagement across three critical areas:

Harnessing student culture in boys, equipping teachers with effective strategies for managing boys and engaging parents and families in supporting boys’ education and enhancing literacy skills among boys.

Address Australia’s Classroom Crisis for Boys

Consider these alarming statistics:

  • Boys are twice as likely as girls to believe that school is ‘a waste of time’
  • Boys are three times more likely to be expelled and twice as likely to be suspended compared to girls
  • One in every eight boys aged 5-7 is part of the NDIS, mainly for conditions such as autism or developmental delay
  • Teenage boys lag behind girls by two years on average in writing skills
  • By Year 9, a staggering 13.4% of boys are functionally illiterate

Mark your calendar for Friday 24 May, 2024 in Melbourne, and be ready to make a difference in the lives of boys in our classrooms.
