Next Tabor 60+ — Do boys learn differently than girls?

At-risk education expert Denise Brown of Hillsboro will present ?Where the Boys Are: Boy-Friendly Classrooms? at the Tabor College ?60+? Learning in Retirement Program, at 9:45 a.m. Monday, March 9 in the Wohlge?muth Music Education Center.

Brown, an at-risk consultant for Smoky Hill Education Service Center, trains school teachers across the state on various teaching topics, including the different ways boys and girls learn in the classroom.

In January, Brown led a workshop for Tabor faculty and staff titled, ?A Framework for Understanding Poverty,? with the intent of helping them relate more effectively with students from different socio-economic backgrounds.

Brown, a graduate of Bethany College, has taught regular and special education in elementary and high school, as well as enjoying a ?mommy sabbatical? when her children were preschoolers.

She currently provides in-service training for teachers throughout Kansas.

The public is welcome to attend all Learning in Retire?ment programs. Fees are $3 per session or $15 per semester ($28 per couple).

Registration and discount cards for lunch in the cafeteria will be available at the door during the half hour before the meeting.

For more information, contact Connie Isaac, coordinator, at 620-947-3121, 947-5964, or
