The interdisciplinary team of Belmont University professors who hosted a food and gardening professional development workshop for area teachers in May were recently published as the lead article in the TN Council of Teachers of English’s peer reviewed publication, Visions and Revisions.
Drs. Lauren Lunsford (Education), Bonnie Smith Whitehouse (English), Sally Barton-Arwood (Education), Kim Daus (Chemistry), Kate McGowan (Education) and Darlene Panvini (Biology) published the article Rooted in Informational Texts: Using Cooking and Gardening to address the CCSS ELA.
This is one of several ways the group is continuing to reach area teachers. 20 middle and high school teachers attended the May workshop on “Food & Gardening: Growing Partnerships between Science Teachers and English Teachers to Support Instruction of the 1-12 Reading (Literature and Informational Text) CC Standards.”
