Preview: Ex Factor Will start you by what gender you are.
By teaching both genders in the same manner, Gurian maintains that teachers are doing one or the other gender a disservice.
This is particularly true because the majority of teachers are females who relate better to how the female brain functions.
Among the most important findings of differences between makes and females are:
Boys need movement to activate their brains and manage and reduce impulsive actions.
Girls don’t need as much movement and manage boredom better than boys.
Boys typically like to study in silence.
They are better at abstract reasoning.
And learn math better on a blackboard.
Girls enjoy learning math through concepts they can control.
Boys like jargon and coded language.
Girls prefer to talk things out as they learn through ideas expressed in plain, everyday language.
These differences and others necessitate a change in both structure, content and style of teaching for girls and boys.
Gurian provides a comprehensive illustration of the neurological, chemical, and hormonal differences between boys and girls.
While the book examines the differences between genders, its main focus is on boys because of their tendency to be more difficult to teach
and because they suffer from more learning and discipline issues.

The reason men can talk about feelings and relationship patterns in consultation rooms,
but are unlikely to keep doing it at home is simple: emotional talk tends to produce more physiological arousal in men—
they experience it more stressfully.
Unlike women, they don’t get the oxytocin reward that makes them feel calm, secure,
and confident when talking about emotions and the complexities of relationships;
testosterone, which men produce more of during stress, seems to reduce the effect of oxytocin,
while estrogen enhances it.
It takes more work with less reward for men to shift into and maintain the active-listening
and self-revealing emotional talk they learn in therapy, so they’re unlikely to do it on a routine basis.
