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

secondary schools, some of which worked with small samples of boys and some of

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

administrators examined which strategies mattered most in terms of their effect on boys’

engagement with and achievement in literacy development. Of high importance was the

fact that this project was closely aligned with ongoing provincial initiatives concerned

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.
