VERSAILLES - Dena Wuebker, agriscience educator at Versailles High School recently attended an 8-day professional development institute at Miami Valley Career and Technology Center to teach the Natural Resources and Ecology section of the Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE).
CASE is an instructional system that is changing the culture of agriculture programs in the United States through intense teacher professional development, inquiry-based, student-focused lessons, assessment, and certification. CASE equips teachers to elevate student experiences in the agriculture classroom, and prepares students for success in college and careers emphasizing science, technology, engineering and math.
While at the CASE Institute Dena Wuebker spent 65 hours working through nearly every lesson in the year-long curriculum and learning how to deliver lessons in an inquiry-based way that will shift their focus in the classroom from teacher-led to student-directed learning. Teachers attending CASE from 6 different states and Dena Wuebker would like to thank MVCTC for providing the financial support for her to participate in the CASE curriculum.
