Resources Abound for Agricultural Educators!

Blog Post created by Olivia Thomas on May 10, 2021

Adaptation is often the norm for Ag Teachers. Every day is a new adventure, every activity turns out differently for every class, and every lesson plan is more guide than firm timeline. And all over the country Ag Teachers band together to lend a hand or an ear, but most frequently, an idea.


From the NAAE’s Communities of Practice to the Ag Ed Discussion Lab on Facebook, our members are asking questions and posting resources every day. This community and the sense of togetherness it inspires is what pushes our profession forward every day. Every post reaches thousands of teachers, meaning that every post helps countless students and in turn, those students go out and become leaders, problem solvers, entrepreneurs and agriculturalists.


Below we have accumulated just a small portion of what our membership has been posting this last month:


  • Dustin Gosser posted a PowerPoint for a United States Horticultural Imports and Exports lecture on our Communities of Practice, here
  • Kaitlyn Bartling provided a Kahoot for her lesson in Fencing 101. Click here to find out more!
