According to brain research (Jensen, 2008), there are known differences in cerebral laterality between males and females. Although our brains are unique, some may believe it is politically incorrect to say there are gender differences and others may stick to the old understanding that males and females are different. For some educators and policy makers it’s easy; we should have same-sex schools. For others, it raises questions about who should teach, class size, and instructional strategies. Can you relate these differences to the brain’s executive processes in problem solving and critical thinking? Would these differences dictate a need to change our educational policies and teaching strategies? Why or why not?

Then respond to at least one classmate from the opposite group with a critical evaluation of their argument or ask for additional evidence to support their viewpoint. Finally, repost your own opinion based on the arguments, research, and your own personal experience. Explain what you believe is the best way to instruct females and males for learning.
