[Extract] Issues related to gender, inclusivity and engagement have a long history in educational settings. For some scholars, many aspects of school life have been constructed around traditional male and female roles while for others there exists a biological imperative to meet the needs of boys and girls. Indeed, the multiplicity of perspectives related to gender, inclusivity and engagement span a number of disciplinary fields yielding many pragmatic and useful pedagogical tools, along with an equal number of contestable theories and ideas. This chapter aims to unpack notions of gender, inclusivity and engagement across the broad fields of psychology and sociocultural theory rather than focusing on one theoretical perspective.
