Regional Teacher Workshops
For nearly twenty years, Kentucky Farm Bureau has provided educators with a variety of teacher training and professional development opportunities designed to better enable participants to incorporate agriculture into their daily core curriculum. More specifically, teachers learn the value of using agricultural related material to teach Mathematics, Social Studies, English and Science through real life application.
This year, due to the ongoing issues related to the Covid19 Virus, Kentucky Farm Bureau is encouraging educators to participate in a virtual professional development opportunity presented by Kentucky Agriculture and Environment in the Classroom. A 2-hour workshop will be offered several times on July 30 - 31 to showcase the new virtual field trips and updated curriculum that includes reading, math, science, social studies, consumerism, financial literacy, and vocational studies activities. Many lessons will be NTI and digital classroom-friendly. Teachers who register and join the virtual workshop via WebEx will receive access to all digital Kentucky Farms Feed Me files and a printed teacher’s guide. Teachers may also receive printed Passport booklets for their students to complete as they watch each video*.

*Passport booklets will be first come first serve.
