NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The college students are teaching the kids, but in the end, the kids end up teaching their teachers, too.

Entering the third year of a four-year grant, undergraduates from MCLA and Williams College have worked with both elementary teachers and college science professors to develop inquiry-based units of instruction based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in a program called “Teaching to Learn.” They then implemented their programs with students in Brayton, Colegrove and Greylock schools - and then made tweaks as they learned from the kindergarten through sixth-graders what works.

STAMFORD, Vt. — This past sunny Saturday, 10 teams were preparing to play at Stamford Valley Golf Course in the 8th annual Drury High School Alumni Golf Tournament.

The annual tourney grew out of a class reunion nearly a decade ago that has since raised thousands of dollars to help the North Adams, Mass., high school.  

The event is sponsored by the Drury class of 1973, said Nancy Bullett, a founder and organizer, and includes alumni from 1965 to 1978.

"It started as an outing for our reunion and we thought, why not make it annual? Why not make it a fundraiser?" she said. "It's a win-win for everybody."

The number of teams and players has gone up and
