Teach Ag Workshop Resources

Discussion created by Ellen Thompson on Jul 25, 2012

In an effort to attract high school students into the Ag Ed profession many states have implemented a Teach Ag workshop.  The workshops are usually conducted during the state FFA convention and facilitated by university faculty and/or current agriculture teachers.  Some workshops are open to all interested students while others are invitation only after being nominated by an agriculture teacher.  Below is a list of states that conduct some form of a Teach Ag workshop or recognition event*.

 

Get Involved:

  • Contact the AFNR supervisor in your state and find out how you can nominate a student for the workshop.
  • Offer to drive the participating students to the workshop or sponsor the cost to attend. 
  • Volunteer to speak at the workshop and talk about the important relationship between the agriculture teacher and the community.
  • Help start a Teach Ag workshop in your state.  For templates, examples, outlines, and activities from other states go to http://www.naae.org/teachag/tag-workshops.php
