Janet Allison

Literacy with Boys

After receiving her degree in Elementary Education, Janet Allison began her teaching career in a class of 10 boys and 2 girls. She quickly realized she had NOT been prepared for the differences in the way boys learn and the way girls learn. Through trial and error, extensive reading and research, and sheer determination, Janet was at last able to understand the parts of her boys that were hard-wired (and therefore unchangeable) and the things that she could change – by making lessons more active and interactive and providing plenty of outside and movement time. Concurrently, she did extensive training in communication skills (Neuro-Linguistic Programming – NLP) and began to hear from parents and other teachers about how much they were struggling with “boy energy.” From there she created The Language of Parenting curriculum which soon after evolved into Boys Alive!
