14709 • Reading Beyond the Walls to Boost Student Achievement-Cullowhee

Monday, October 1, 2018 to Thursday, October 4, 2018

276 NCCAT Drive, Cullowhee, NC 28723

Children today spend less time outdoors than ever before—and it may be detrimental not only to their physical health, but also to their cognitive development. Current research shows that students in schools with more “greenness” in their surroundings report higher scores on standardized testing in English and math. We will examine research on the “nature deficit disorder” and will develop and share plans for connecting literacy and nature. Come join us as we explore the rationale for exposing students to nature and strategies for connecting literacy activities to green spaces in and around our public schools.
