Friday, March 22, 2013

-Sent to All Contacts.

Please share the following information with Preschool - 12th Grade teachers at your school. Its an excellent opportunity to share information about agriculture issues with fellow elementary and high school teachers.
Summer Agriculture Institutes will be held both in Belleville and Marion/Murphysboro this summer. This is open to all educators. The course can be taken for CPDU's or graduate credit.  The institute will include field trips to agribusiness, guest speakers, and  'hands on activities'. Participants will receive curriculum resources to teach academic concepts with agricultural activies.  Agricultural careers will be a focus also.
The dates are June 10 - 14th, 2013 at St. Clair County Farm Bureau in Belleville or June 24 - 28, 2013 with time split between Jackson & Williamson County Farm Bureaus in Murphysboro & Marion.

The cost is $65 for 36 CPDUS from Southern Illinois University or $450 for 3 graduate credits from Aurora University.  Most County Farm Bureau Offices have scholarships to offset the fees for this course.

Deadline to return SAI application is April 15th.  The application is attached.  For more information, email  Amy Boren  -

It only takes a minute or so to forward this message to your teacher colleagues in hopes that one teacher will attend from your school district.  One more teacher learning about agriculture can be an advocate for life.
