Workshop helps Local Educators Explore what is Special about Agriculture.
Delaware, Buchanan and Linn County Farm Bureau is excited to partner with Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation, to host “Exploring what is Special about Agriculture.”
“Exploring what is Special about Agriculture,” is being offered August 5 and 6, 2019 at the Delaware County Fairgrounds in Manchester, Iowa. The workshop will be available for teacher recertification credit and graduate level credit.
This fast-paced professional development will give teachers, extension personnel, and others who educate youth the skills they need to implement many of the Iowa Core social studies and science standards. Participants will take home activities and lesson ideas that can be immediately implemented into their classroom.
The workshop will be hands on and interactive with one day of site visits and tours and one day of practical classroom application. Participants will observe how Iowa farmers are raising specialty crops like flowers, vegetables, apples, and aronia berries.
Workshops are made possible by supporters of the Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation including the Silos and Smokestacks National Heritage Area, Bayer, REAP Conservation Education Program, and Farm Credit Services of America with additional support from Iowa Corn Growers Association, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Iowa Pork Producers Association, Corteva Agriscience, GROWMARK, and the Iowa Beef Industry Council.
