If you are an agriculture teacher in Florida or Louisiana, and have ever considered teaching CASE, this summer is your opportunity to get the curriculum and accompanying professional development for free. As a special project of the National FFA Foundation, Mosaic is sponsoring full scholarships for Florida and Louisiana agriculture teachers to attend a 2012 CASE institute of their choosing.
Everyone who attends a CASE institute comes away with the full CASE curriculum and accompanying materials for that course, as well as the benefit of extensive training on how to implement the course into their program.
The Florida scholarship even includes a $500 travel stipend, so this is a unique opportunity to get first-rate professional development for free. With budget restrictions that so many school districts are facing, this is a fantastic opportunity.
This scholarship is available for both beginning and experienced teachers, so whether you?ve been in the agriculture classroom for 20 years or are just tying down that first job after student teaching, you can apply.
Although the deadline for these scholarships was originally the first part of May, there is still a lot of scholarship money left. Scholarships will continue to be awarded after review of qualifications until all available scholarships have been awarded. CASE institutes are starting soon though, so don't delay.
