January 6: The Minds of Boys and Girls with Michael Gurian
Saint Michael Episcopal School was thrilled to join with Good Shepherd Episcopal School, The daVinci School, Westminster Preschool and Kindergarten, Wesley Prep and Incarnation Academy to welcome the renowned educator and New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Michael Gurian.
After a day of training with 150 educators from participating schools, teachers left equipped to see their classrooms and curriculums through a gender lens and with a better understanding of the brains of boys and girls.
In a night tailored to parents of children of all ages, Dr. Gurian explored the topic of how the minds of boys and girls develop distinctly and his keynote brought to life how a child's learning mind grows. His work is based on 30 years of research in brain science, education and practical parenting to support the unique needs of both our daughters and our sons.
In addition to his work authoring 32 books published in 23 languages, Dr. Gurian is featured weekly on his podcast, The Wonder of Parenting. In each episode, he and Rev. Tim Wright break down research on the brain and it’s intricate functions and helps bring to life the strategies necessary to nurture the nature of our children.
