Girls are now out-performing boys at GCSE level, giving rise to a debate in the media on boys' underachievement. However, often such work has been a 'knee-jerk' response, led by media, not based on solid research. Boys, Girls and Achievement - Addressing the Classroom Issues fills that gap and: *provides a critical overview of the current debate on achievement; *Focuses on interviews with young people and classroom observations to examine how boys and girls see themselves as learners; *analyses the strategies teachers can use to improve the educational achievements of both boys and girls. Becky Francis provides teachers with a thorough analysis of the various ways in which secondary school pupils construct their gender identities in the classroom. The book also discusses methods teachers might use challenge these gender constructions in the classroom and thereby address the 'gender-gap' in achievement.

Schultz would have been happy spending the summer getting high, doing some brewin’, and watching his best friend Stamm sell drugs out of his parents’ garage. But he got bored watching Stamm slip depressingly into a mysterious addiction, so Schultz goes in search of new highs. That’s when he finds out what being a real Boug Boy is all about. Boug Boys opens a window into the life and exploits of a group of ass-kicking, whiskey-drinking, drug-taking boys who fear nothing except sobriety. They live life like they listen to music: FULL BLAST! Like savage, smart-mouthed animals in suburban captivity, they run wild, steal anything not bolted down, attack anything that shows aggression, and smoke anything they can’t drink. They speak their own language and follow their own rules. Curt is an older guy and a real bad ass. He’s been shacked up with two girls who own a party house called The Duplex. Along with some other Boug Boys, like Dick Sinner and Fooky, they find themselves in the middle of drunken, drug-induced shenanigans that are the things of which legends are made. This humorous coming-of-age tale raises the roof on teen drug culture.

To end a famine, the people of Qaralon have been driven to the stars in search of a good farming planet; now, the scouts have finally found one teeming with life. The problem is, it’s also teeming with humans, a stubborn species that doesn’t give up without a fight. After fifty years of brutal war, Earth is trying to find balance, peace, and hope once again. Born and raised on his parents’ ship, the Universe Explorer, during the war, Jonathon Casey is a true child of the stars. Everyone assumes that he will run his own ship one day, but Jonathon had other ideas. He becomes a child therapist instead—but he can’t resist the call of the open skies for long and returns to space to protect the earth. But now that the fighting has ended, his attentions shift back to caring for the children of war, those innocents who have lost everything. Despite the best efforts to protect them, many are damaged, scarred, and lost. For those left behind, the government-run homes are far from a safe sanctuary. The kids do whatever they need to do to survive on the streets, and it is to this group of scrappy survivors that he was drawn. To bring his new dream to life, Jonathon pulls the old family spaceship out of retirement and recruits twenty boys from the streets for his new crew. Not even Captain Casey could have predicted what these young men were capable of when put to the test.

As Miss Maggs made her way nervously home, a clock stuck one, the town's lights were switched off and footsteps sounded behind her. She broke into a desperate run. Later the doctor pronounced that she had literally died of fright. In a provincial town, who was there to suspect but the rowdy gang led by Nick Salter? But Nick's young wife swore to an alibi for him and so Sergeant Brent - a trifle embarrassed as a beneficiary under the will of the deceased - must look deeper into a case in which teenagers might too easily be made the whipping boys for the crimes of others.

London 1968: The Unstable Boys are the name on every music insider's lips and tipped to follow in the footsteps of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. This is their chance to hit the bigtime. They don't know they're about to be obliterated by a series of tragedies and a chaotic breakup that puts paid to the band's starry-eyed dreams of stratospheric success. One day you're the dog's bollocks; the next day you're a nobody - fame is a fickle friend. London 2016: Bestselling crime writer Michael Martindale has reached breaking point. Estranged from his wife and children following the very public fallout of his disastrous affair, he is alone, with only his self-pity to keep him warm at night. Until he makes the mistake of publicly declaring his admiration for his teenage musical obsession, the Unstable Boys. When the band's twisted and feral frontman, the Boy, turns up on his doorstep, Martindale quickly learns that sometimes you should be careful what you wish for. Razor-sharp and laced with a caustic wit, The Unstable Boys is a dark comic caper with an unmistakeable musicality from legendary music journalist Nick Kent.

A positive vision for masculinity in a postfeminist world Boys and men are struggling. Profound economic and social changes of recent decades have many losing ground in the classroom, the workplace, and in the family. While the lives of women have changed, the lives of many men have remained the same or even worsened. Our attitudes, our institutions, and our laws have failed to keep up. Conservative and progressive politicians, mired in their own ideological warfare, fail to provide thoughtful solutions. The father of three sons, a journalist, and a Brookings Institution scholar, Richard V. Reeves has spent twenty-five years worrying about boys both at home and work. His new book, Of Boys and Men, tackles the complex and urgent crisis of boyhood and manhood. Reeves looks at the structural challenges that face boys and men and offers fresh and innovative solutions that turn the page on the corrosive narrative that plagues this issue. Of Boys and Men argues that helping the other half of society does not mean giving up on the ideal of gender equality.
