St. Paul's School hosted an International Boys' School Coalition conference for educators new to teaching at boys' schools. Members of the St. Paul's faculty and guests presented during the three-day conference on practices in boys' education.
"This conference brought together professionals new to boys' schools with seasoned colleagues to strengthen all participants' contributions to their schools and focus on pedagogical approaches that work especially well for boys," said Headmaster David Faus. "It was our privilege to host the conference and the meaningful dialogue addressing the principal developmental distinctions of boys at every age."
The event opened with a keynote address by Michael Reichert, executive director of the Center for the Study of Boys' and Girls' Lives, on the relational approach to boys' learning. Jack Pannell provided a workshop on working with boys of color. Faus hosted a heads panel discussion with area boys' school heads and several St. Paul's students also participated on a panel.
St Paul's School has been actively engaged with the coalition focusing on boys' education. Headmaster Faus serves on the IBSC Program Committee and is a frequent presenter at their annual conference held most recently in Australia and Montreal, Canada.
