Looking for a great way to get your students moving? Participate with your class in Stride with Pride 2014!
Broome -Tioga BOCES, Binghamton University’s Center for Applied Community Research and Development and WSKG Public Media 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 (October 6th-November 14th). The anonymous data will be collected and evaluated by Binghamton University to examine if student's movement increased over the six week time period. Classrooms are asked to participate in a post program survey assessing if pedometer use continues after the Stride with Pride program. 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 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 (30)
- The books: Energizing Brain Breaks by David Sladey and Energizers: 88 Quick Movement Activities that Refresh & Refocus by Susan Lattanzi Roser

- Movement lessons that are aligned to the Common Core Standards ELA/Literacy and Math

- Training on PBS Learning Media and access to Kids in Motion media resources for the classroom
