Katie McCauley advances to State Agricultural Education CDE

The purpose of the Agricultural Education Career Development Event is to provide individuals with basic skills necessary for a career as an agricultural educator. Teaching agriculture involves teaching students about applications of science, management, leadership, and technology in the food, fiber, natural resource industry. Teaching methods emphasize hands on approaches where application of skills and knowledge is central to lesson presentations. Agricultural Education strives to make learning enjoyable, meaningful and lasting. Agriculture Education incorporates classroom and laboratory instruction, supervised agricultural experiences (SAE), and the FFA to allow for the personal development of students both inside and outside the classroom to better prepare them for success in life. Congratulations to the ten individuals who will be competing in the final round of competition for the 1st Illinois Agricultural Education CDE!  Students submitted lesson plans in April and the top ten competitors, based on lesson plan scores, will present 10 minutes of their lesson at Illinois State FFA Convention.  Information was emailed to all advisors who had students submit a lesson plan.
