What do you wish you would have known as a pre-service teacher?

Discussion created by Rebecca Lawver on May 2, 2013

I teach a managing FFA and SAE course at Utah State to our pre-service teachers - my questions is this:


1. What do you wish you would have known about FFA and SAE as a pre-service teacher?



Currently, my students help organize the departmental banquet and the state Ag Sales CDE, they complete records on AET, 'teach' FFA and SAE, and prepare a FFA/SAE policy statement. I feel these activities are effective, but I am looking for something 'more' or 'real' to add to or complement what I teach them.


We discuss many things from officer elections to fundraising to SAE visits and summer ag - but what else could I do to better prepare them?


Thanks in advance! FFA
