The Power of Relational Engagement to Transform Elementary School Boys

In this article Richard Hawley and Linda Rohler share the importance of relational teaching in the younger years. Students’ willingness to engage in and master school challenges reflects the depth of their teachers’ commitment to the twin crafts of classroom management and instruction. Boys are most inclined to relate to teachers whose care for them is inseparable from their commitment to their work. Personal warmth is essential, but it is not enough. Read more about their research and firsthand experience.

To engage with Hawley and Rohler in greater depth, they offer a workshop on Transforming Boys in the Primary Grades. Get more details on the workshop. Contact Richard Hawley directly to schedule a workshop.
