Gender, the Brain & CLD

Male & Female Differences


3-Credits  |  6-Hours of Lecture + Additional Application

Why are boys test scores sometimes 2 or more years behind girls? Why do spatial reasoning scores differ by gender? Brain imaging shows compelling differences in male-female processing. The resulting color preference, emotional processing, and play behaviors seem to result in quite significant differences in classroom performance and behavior.

Learn how neurology, hormones and culture work together to create the sometimes hilarious opposites. The latest research provides an understanding of gender differences and allows educators to tap into their greatest potential.

You won’t believe how simple the answer may be…

Additional Application: Examples of various strategies and activities will be provided for you to choose from.

*Please Note: University credit is an additional fee. Please be sure to contact your district for credit requirements. 

I wish that all parents knew this info because it could really transform our world.

I learned how to speak to my male coworkers, how to apply it to my marriage and male students, and how to ask for a raise



I took your Gender and the Brain course almost 10 years ago when I was a first grade teacher in Boulder Valley. 10 years (and three boys) later I am *still* using what I learned in your class!
