CAST Friday Notes

This week’s newsletter includes news headlines such as the Farm Bill, and it provides an interview with a successful college viral video maker, a blog about the benefit of growing up with farm germs, and a recipe for Twinkie sushi.

The Council for Agricultural Science and Technology's (CAST) weekly online newsletter, Friday Notes, is available due to a grant from Winfield Solutions (a Land O’Lakes company).  Instructors of agriculture have access to the wide range of material from CAST, and they may forward the information to students for educational use with no strings attached.

New Online Community for Rural Schools
The White House Rural Council announced the U.S. Department of Education’s new online community of practice group for rural schools. Virtual communities of practice provide a platform for educators to connect to resources, tools, colleagues, experts, and learning activities, both within and beyond schools.

Rural school leaders and teachers can join this online community by logging-on to www.schoolturnaroundsupport.org, creating an account, and choosing the Rural Schools group. As membership grows, rural educators will be able to connect with peers in their home states and across the nation to exchange ideas and learn from one another. READ MORE.
