2024 Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE) Institute
Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources introduces students to the range of agricultural opportunities and the pathways of study they may pursue. Science, mathematics, reading, and writing components are woven in the context of agriculture and students will use the introductory skills and knowledge developed in this course throughout the CASE curriculum.
Teachers are provided detailed professional development to facilitate instruction. CASE provides extensive preparation for the teacher to be proficient and confident in their ability to provide proper instruction of agriscience skills and concepts. Every lesson is aligned to national standards for agriculture, science, mathematics, and English language arts.
This summer, we will be hosting Agricultural Power and Technology (APT) and Principles of Agricultural Science-Animal (ASA).
Agricultural Power and Technology is a foundation-level course designed to prepare students for the wide array of career opportunities in agricultural engineering. Throughout the course, students apply technical skill while being competent in the process used to operate, repair, engineer, and design agricultural tools and equipment. CASE provides extensive preparation for the teacher to be proficient and confident in their ability to provide proper instruction of mechanical skills and concepts.
Principles of Agricultural Science-Animal is a foundation-level course engaging students in hands-on laboratories and activities to explore the world of animal agriculture. During the course, students develop a comprehensive Producer's Management Guide for an animal of their choice. Students experiences involve the study of animal anatomy, physiology, behavior, nutrition, reproduction, health, selection, and marking. Throughout the course, students consider the perceptions and preferences of individuals within local, regional, and world markets.
