GHS ag teacher heads back to school



GHS Ag teacher, Terry Nickels

Terry Nickels, agriscience educator at Goldendale High School recently attended an eight-day professional development institute at Dayton, Ohio, to teach the Introduction to Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources 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, Nickels 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.

"This will be a great curriculum for us to teach students about science and agriculture," Nickels stated.
