Boys Can Do Better

Synopsis
Based on two reports, ‘Can Do Better’ published by QCA and ‘Improving Boys’ Literacy’ by the Basic Skills Agency. Filmed in two schools, these two 30-minute programmes
provide information on the scale and nature of boys’ under-attainment in literacy, successful strategies to improve literacy among boys and practical techniques that teachers can use in supporting boys’ literacy. The programmes reflect two approaches:
the strategies an individual teacher can adopt to raise standards of boys’ literacy, and
whole-school initiatives.
