A few years ago, St. John's Northwestern Military Academy partnered with Michael C. Reichert, Ph.D., executive director of the Center for the Study of Boys' and Girls' Lives based in the Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania, to explore our relational teaching strategies with boys. With his help, we have been creating a professional development plan grounded in reflective practice that is allowing us to put his research on boys as relational learners into practice. This involves learning how to more effectively manage the teacher-student relationship to produce the best possible learning outcome for our boys, bringing us closer to becoming a model relational school.
Dr. Reichert published an article called "Relational Strategies to Engage Boys" in the Summer 2015 issue of Independet School Magazine and featured SJNMA as one of his case studies. Read his article here.
