Rathunde, Kevin
NAMTA Journal, v38 n1 p237-241 Win 2013
Kevin Rathunde turns his research lens to the task of finding out the relevance of the natural world, its impact on adolescent motivation, and its positive sustaining of concentration and focus. He cites "disembodiment and denaturing" as needing to be countered by contact with nature, leading to higher creativity, less drudgery, and more positive social interaction for an adolescent community.
