MAITC leads professional development workshops for K-12 teachers, pre-service teachers, agriculture producers, and volunteers at colleges and conferences around the state every year. Customized workshops provide opportunities to gain resources and ideas for embedding authentic agricultural examples within science, social studies, math, language arts and health/nutrition curricula. Contact Education Specialist Sue Knott or Keri Sidle, to request a workshop for your group.
Workshops can be customized to fit your needs. Sample options include:
- One-four hour workshop during an in-service day
- 30-60 minute Interaction with a focused group such as grade-level team, PLC, etc.
- 15-20 minute presentation during faculty meeting
The typical workshop format includes whole group activities, hands-on experience with lessons and curricula and sharing samples of our free educational resources. MN Ag in the Classroom Education Specialists share academic standards-based, ag focused activities throughout the workshop.
