National Teach Ag! Day Recap #tagged15 #hookedonpsuaged

On September 24th we celebrated National Teach Ag! Day with a lot of fun events! We hosted Dave Burgess, had a one on one workshop session with Dave, and also was able to tune in to the live stream hosted by the National Teach Ag! Campaign. Let’s break down the day a little:

Dave Burgess Keynote:
Dave Burgess spoke in the HUB Robeson Center and delivered a one of a kind message to the university. Staff members, students, and even some alumni came to listen in! His energetic message and delivery of his speech made everyone in the audience truly think about how they can change up their classrooms, meetings or any day to day activity and make it better! At the end of the Keynote, Dave Burgess was kind enough to sign books for the audience members and take a couple of pictures as well!

#psuaged16 Workshop with Dave Burgess and Cooperating Teachers

After the Keynote concluded, cooperating teachers and the AEE seniors were able to go to a different classroom and begin a one on one teacher workshop session with Dave. He brought more of his examples that he uses in the classroom and how he gets his students fired up to learn about the lesson of that day. After it concluded, teachers and students alike were all excited to go back to the classroom and implement the new strategies they learned.
National Live Stream
Due to technical difficulties, our live stream was not able to make it on the big screen down in Washington D.C.! We look forward to other opportunities in the future and partnering with the National Teach Ag! Campaign.
Overall it was a great day filled with lots of learning and working with our Ag Ed Family! We look forward to many more National Teach Ag! Days and inviting new people to collaborate with the Penn State Ag Ed Majors!
