The Owl Pellet Crew - Kate, Marshall, and Brian - speak with Misty Lambert and Aaron McKim from Oregon State University about how agriculture teachers should "illuminate" the science of agriculture in the classroom/laboratory, FFA, and SAE activities. They provide us all with some great tips on how to do this and how to talk about it with other teachers, administrators, and our students.

We discuss the 4 roles that ag teachers should have as we guide our students through experiential learning activities in the classroom, the laboratory, FFA activities, and SAEs.

Great practical tips on simple ideas teachers can start doing in the classroom today to make their lives easier and help students meet higher levels of achievement.
