Because of COVID-19-related issues, National Agriculture in the Classroom had to cancel this year's national conference 'Agriculture Elevated' in Salt Lake City, Utah. But the organization and its sponsors wanted teachers and volunteer educators to receive some agricultural literacy professional development training this summer so it has scheduled the 2020 NAITC Virtual Summit June 24-25, the same days as the canceled conference.
Enjoy the online workshops free of charge from the comfort of your home. The sessions are open to anyone interested in pre-kindergarten-12th grade agricultural literacy. Twelve, one-hour workshops have been scheduled for Wednesday June 24 and Thursday June 25. The six workshops on the first day are geared to elementary levels. The six workshops on the second day are geared to secondary levels. These trainings cover reading, writing, math, science, social studies, STEM and other subject areas, and some of the presenters are the developers of these lessons and are teachers, Agriculture in the Classroom state contacts and National Center for Agricultural Literacy (NCAL) curriculum specialists.
