Thank you to ABC News for including recess in a recent focus on education in the US! Dr. Ramstetter and Global Recess Alliance friend, Dr. Will Massey, advocate for the benefits of recess for ALL students. While the segment features images of younger children, recess/break time is ESSENTIAL for students of all ages, from kindergarten through high school–just as breaks are important for adults!
Need inspiration to transform recess at your school? Check out this video from another Global Recess Alliance friend, Dr. Lauren McNamara! Documenting The Recess Project Canada at two schools, and featuring the students as key stakeholders, it’s also a model for community engagement.
