Gender roles, and the construction of gender, are under scrutiny in our society. Many questions are being asked about the roles of men in light of the successful emergence of feminism (Connell, 1989). There is a "crisis of masculinity" (Salisbury & Jackson, 1996) which has resulted in a bombardment of literature surrounding the issue and this, in turn, has filtered through to schools responsible for the education of boys. The purpose of this particular study is to contribute both to the theory and the practice of boy's education. It endeavours to identify the issues surrounding boy's education and to support the involvement of a small group of teachers in a school based curriculum development to bring about improvement in the area.
The method of research considered most appropriate to the aims of this study was a qualitative model called action research. Action research is a form of self reflective enquiry that supports the involvement of not only teachers, but also the researcher in the improvement of practice (Kemmis & McTaggert, p.5).
