I have been doing some reading on the gender gap between boys and girls in literacy and the continuing trend that boys demonstrate a lack of motivation and are less engaged when it comes to reading and writing. In my grade 3 class, 3/4 of the students are boys. I am reflecting on my own teaching practice as I continue researching the topic and the various suggestions. I'd like to hear from anyone who has thoughts on the issue or has come across a good research article.
