Liz Tinaglia has been teaching agriculture for some time.
To be exact, she has 16 years of experience in Owatonna Public Schools.
But she’s never experienced anything like the 10-day, hands-on, industry-driven training she received at South Central College in July.
“Definitely the best training I’ve ever had,” she said.
SCC’s workshop for the Curriculum for Agriculture Science Education consisted of 80 hours of instruction for 18 high school educators — 14 from Minnesota and four from Oregon and Nebraska.
CASE, as the curriculum is known, is a project of the National Council for Agriculture Education and its mission is to “elevate student experiences in the agriculture classroom, and prepare students for success in college and careers emphasizing science, technology, engineering and math.”
