Guest Blog: Andrea Fristoe, National Teach Ag Campaign

Blog Post created by Sarah Warren on May 13, 2020

This week, our Map Maker activity has a fun twist. I reached out to Andrea Fristoe, NAAE Program Manager, and asked her to share some of her thoughts related to Chapter 5 of Marching Off the Map. Please read her guest blog post, and then come back here for today's activity!


Marching Off the Map for the Future of Ag Education


Map Maker:
1) Did you know? The National Teach Ag Campaign has a plethora of resources available on their website! Head on over and locate the "Promote Teach Ag" menu from the left-hand sidebar. Then check out the "Activities, Lessons, Games" page. Which of these activities could you incorporate into your curriculum? (tell us in the comments below!)


2) Teach Ag Kit Giveaway:  Have you ever sent a Teach Ag Kit to someone you know who would be an awesome ag teacher? Here's your chance! This week we are giving away 5 Teach Ag Kits on behalf of our Virtual Book Club explorers. You can enter for a chance to send a free kit to a potential future ag teacher here! The entry form for this drawing will be open until May 20th, and I will announce the 5 winners in next week's Map Maker activity post. 


For more information about Teach Ag Kits, visit this link.

*** Official Drawing Rules:
1) All names who enter will be placed in a random name generator. If you are one of 5 winners, I will notify you via the email address you provide in your entry form. 
2) You must be a member of NAAE and a registered Virtual Book Club participant to win.

3) Winners will then be instructed to provide the necessary information for a Future Ag Teacher of your choice. We will send that person a Teach Ag Kit on your behalf! 

4) Teach Ag Kits are currently on hold as the NAAE office works remotely. We will send your Teach Ag Kit to your student when we return to the office in the coming weeks. Please allow up to one month for your student to receive the kit from the time of submitting their shipping info.
NOTE: If you are a winner in this drawing, we will be contacting you in order to collect information about the person to whom you would like to send this kit. This does not mean you will be getting a kit. The goal here is to encourage more future ag teachers to join the profession!
