|Katie is a 2016 student teacher.|
Katie has been student teaching at Big Spring High School. At Big Spring she has been able to teach the CASE Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources curriculum and has found many crossovers with science and math principles. Katie says " Case does an excellent job of integrating STEM into the curriculum and it's adaptable." To further develop herself professionally, and add another tool to her tool box as a teacher, she looked for opportunities to be certified to teach with CASE curriculum. For the FFA Impact scholarship, she was one of four students to receive this honor. Katie said "this scholarship will assist me with supporting my curriculum development as a new teacher."
CASE or Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education, provides materials, and education materials to students and teachers to "enhance the rigor and relevance of agriculture, food, and natural resources subject matter. CASE uses inquiry and problem, project and activity based lessons. Each CASE lesson is aligned with math and science standards. In order for a teacher to utilize CASE curriculum, it is necessary that they attend a CASE institute offered every summer.
