NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee State University is hosting a two-week course to help high school educators in the field of agriculture enhance their students' learning experience.
Twenty educators from across the country arrived at the college over the weekend and were to be in Nashville through June 20th for the Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education project.
The Agricultural and Extension Education Service at TSU is hosting the course for the second year.
John Ricketts is an associate professor with the Extension Service.
He says the CASE institute benefits teachers, students and the agriculture industry by enhancing agricultural education programs to develop and produce well-educated and highly-skilled graduates.
During the course, teachers will learn everything from examining cell structures of animals and plants to soil testing and diagnosing diseases.
