Schools were involved in a large-scale collaborative teacher inquiry project designed to

address the gender gap in literacy achievement. Included were both elementary and

which worked with the entire population of boys in the school. Teachers and

with resource and staff development. Teacher inquiry was meant to be a key

complement to school reform and literacy-based initiatives presently underway in

schools and districts.
