About this Grantee

Ms. Delgado leads a study group on gender preferences and education. Participants will facilitate single-sex reading clubs for low-performing reading students to determine the various responses of boys and girls to reading materials. During each school day, participating teachers analyze gender differences in their classrooms, experiment with single sex grouping, and record reflections and observations. Teachers also read Why Gender Matters by Leonard Sax, view “Raising and Educating Boys/Girls” from the Gurian Institute and meet monthly to discuss and share reflections on these materials. Collegial sharing includes presentations to the faculty, the school’s PTA, and the Maryland State Teacher’s Convention. Some participants also write an article for the Baltimore County Council of the International Reading Association.
