I am a first year teacher and I am currently teaching 2 different classes of 8th graders Ag. 101. Between the 2 classes, I have a total of 42 students. I have been using the curriculum on the National FFA's websit because it seemed fun and it would keep the interest of the students; however, that is not the case. I am thinking about switching over to Georgia Ag. Ed's curriculum for middle school. How do those of you that Ag 101 to 8th graders keep them interested and motivated? Any information is greatly appreciated.
