Teacher Training Workshops


There are not currently any training events scheduled
; however, the AGsploration team is happy to provide training per request to groups of 12 or more of educators at your facility. If you are interested in a training at your school or location, please contact David Gordon. 


Overview

One-day AGsploration workshops enable teachers to receive training in animal agriculture, plant agriculture, agriculture and the environment, and agricultural technology lessons. Workshop participants will receive a complete copy of the curriculum as well as teaching kit to include all materials necessary for teaching the lessons in one of the four curricular tracks. In-service participants will receive six hours of instruction, copies of the AGsploration curriculum, complete materials to teach selected lessons, and a hot lunch. Registration is free!


Eligibility to enroll

Workshops will be open to educators who work with middle school aged youth. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis. (For example, high school agriculture teachers whose FFA members intend to teach the curriculum to younger students will be allowed to register).
