Indoor and Outdoor Training Sessions:

This year’s workshops will again highlight several agricultural  lessons that are designed to better enable you to broaden your students’ educational experiences and deepen their desires to learn. Whether it is a simple indoor activity or a long-term outdoor adventure, you will be pleased as academic achievements grow with their agricultural interests. The ag industry in Kentucky, and throughout the United States, has an abundance of quality materials that are designed to incorporate agricultural and environmental concepts as you teach core content. These interdisciplinary lessons are excellent tools as you seek to enhance student learning and knowledge retention.
