CASE Institute Registration
CASE is excited to announce that registration is now open for the 30 CASE Institutes that will be held this upcoming summer! To register for a CASE Institute please follow this link.
Each site will be capped at 18 participants, with sites able to extend participant registrations up to, but not greater than, 20 participants. Many institutes’ registrations filled quickly last year so teachers should be sure to register as soon as they have secured the appropriate funding. Please note that any registration canceled within 30 days of the start of an institute will be subject to a $250 cancelation fee. Please contact CASE Professional Development Director, Shari Smith, at email@example.com with any questions regarding the 2014 CASE Institutes.
Also – below is information on the DuPont Pioneer CASE Scholarship Program for those who are interested:
DuPont Pioneer is proud to offer grants to high schools to assist with the implementation of CASE in the 2014-15 school year. DuPont Pioneer believes that CASE places proven tools in the hands of those who are strategically positioned to help end world hunger – agricultural science teachers. Their important work in and out of the classroom inspires future scientists, who will discover innovative and sustainable ways to improve agricultural productivity.
The Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE) empowers teachers for student success by providing inquiry-based educational experiences, which enhance the rigor and relevance of agriculture, food, and natural resources subject matter. Concepts are taught using activity, project, and problem based instructional strategies and build skills in the areas of science, mathematics, and English. As an added bonus, this effort ensures quality teaching by providing extensive professional development for teachers that leads to certification.
Schools may apply for grants up to $5,000 for CASE Institute registration and travel, purchase of equipment to be used in CASE courses, and/or acquisition of software to implement a CASE course. An interested teacher should work with school administration to ensure the necessary level of commitment to the CASE program and to complete the application form. Follow this link for more information and the application.
Information on the 2014 CASE Institute dates and locations is available on the CASE website.
