Extension Educators Need to Know:

The program comes with ready-made kits located for each area (wildlife, food waste and health and wellness), complete with Educator's tips, resource materials, curriculum, and survey instruments. This curriculum requires preparation for a successful program. Reviewing each lesson and tote is highly encouraged as there may be supplies or items that need preparation or ordering. Totes may need items replenished with regular use, so it is very important to review inventory in each tote with the lesson to ensure that you have all supplies needed.

For more information on how The Nature of Teaching qualifies as a signature program, and how to be added to the IRB, please visit the Agriculture Natural Resources Intranet - Nature of Teaching (login required).
