Kansas Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom will again offer a graduate-level summer course through Kansas State University in 2011. The KFAC summer graduate course is designed to re-energize Kansas teachers and introduce them to delivery methods and resource materials which can be used to incorporate agriculture into the curriculum. Scholarships provided by agriculture donors are available, which make this exceptional resource an affordable option for all Kansas teachers.
"Connecting Your Classroom to Kansas Agriculture" is a weeklong hands-on experience that assists teachers in integrating agriculture into all classroom subjects while aligning lessons with state curricular standards. Teachers will participate in creating techniques that will allow their students to investigate the scientific process, practice daily observations, take data measurements and analyze results using agricultural examples. This course is offered in Manhattan, June 6-10.
The KFAC course is offered through Kansas State University Division of Continuing Education, the College of Education and the College of Agriculture, and participants earn Kansas State University graduate credit. The course is approved for continuing education hours required of teachers for license renewal and salary advancement. The course is designed for K-12 teachers.
