Biology professor Darlene Panvini, education professors Lauren Lunsford and Sally Arwood and several Belmont students attended the annual Tennessee Environmental Education Association meeting at the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont, Tenn. on Sept. 26-28. The Belmont faculty members gave a presentation titled “Reading in the Garden: Integrating Science and ELA CCSS through Informational Texts,” which included information about the professional development institute. This institute was held for middle and high school teachers in summer 2014 at Belmont as part of a grant received from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. Biology students Katelyn Keast, Chelsea Lee and Lindsay Millward, environmental science student Alex Jeffers, as well as environmental science alumni Erin Pitts and Sylvia Alsup attended the event.
