Stride with Pride Teacher Workshop

March 19

Looking for a great way to get your students moving?  Participate with your class in Stride with Pride 2013! 

Broome -Tioga BOCES, Binghamton University’s Decker School of Nursing and WSKG are teaming up for Stride with Pride. This program is designed to integrate movement throughout the school day and help students become more aware of the importance of exercise.  Students will be asked to wear pedometers during the school day and record their daily steps over a six week period (April 29th to June 7th). The anonymous data will be collected and evaluated by  Binghamton University's Center for Applied Community Research and Decker School of Nursing, to examine how student movement affects their well being. All data is anonymous and no school or student will be identified. In order for schools to participate in the program, they must agree to also take part in the study/data collection.  Stride with Pride is part of WSKG's Working on Wellness intiative.

Stride with Pride is open to all teachers in Broome and Tioga counties who teach Grades 3-5. As participants in the program, teachers will be provided with the following:

  • A classroom set of pedometers
  • The book, Brain Rules by John Medina
  • Professional development on pedometer-use, movement lesson ideas and data collection
  • Movement lesson ideas that are aligned to the Common Core Standards ELA/Literacy and Math
  • Follow up support

The training will take place on March 19th from 4-6 pm at WSKG studios in Vestal, New York. If your district/building is interested in participating, click here to register.
