My Opinion: Male Students Need Help to Succeed in School

Most male students don’t seem to care as much as female students about school.

Overall, male students seem disinclined to do their work.

To compensate for male students’ apathy, schools and teachers should try different, more open approaches to teaching.

Instead of lecturing and expecting students to take notes daily, teachers could provide more hands-on experience and more visual guides like Youtube videos.

Male students often respond well to hands-on learning/teaching since those experiences provide visual and physical aid about subject.

Males are more physical and like to move around much more than is typically permitted in the average classroom setting. Teachers could provide opportunities for students to interact physically or kinesthetically with the material instead of passively reading or writing.
