Engaging and Educating Agricultural Educators

Through the NC Agricultural Foundation, the grant “Engaging and Educating Agricultural Educators” will provide opportunities for Agricultural Extension and Education students to gain real-world context and experiences, contributing to their preparation for future careers as extension agents or agriculture teachers. Immersive experiences to farms and agricultural industries will allow students to connect content knowledge with real-world opportunities and perspectives that can be integrated in extension programming and curriculum development. These experiences will take place during the following sessions: fall break, spring break, and summer. These immersive visits will showcase the diversity that is found within North Carolina agriculture by sessions being held in different parts of the state. Following each session, students will be required to prepare two lesson plans based on their trips. These plans will then be distributed to teachers and agents within the state to use within their classes and programs.
