Kansas educators attend tri-state conference at Rock Springs

ROCK SPRINGS RANCH, Kan.- Forty educators from across Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, and Nevada attended the Tri-State SAE Conference, held June 27-29, 2018, at Rock Springs Ranch 4-H Center, near Junction City, Kan. The Tri-State SAE Conference is a three-day experience designed around increasing student engagement and career readiness through the Supervised Agricultural Experience to ensure that learning and growth happen for every student, every day. SAE is the Work-Based Learning model for Agricultural Education.

Marais des Cygnes Valley FFA adviser Danny Rice attended the conference with 13 other Kansas educators.

Training was conducted in multiple intelligences, modalities, language, and e-moments. Participants integrated this information into lesson plans and shared with their peers. Participants were provided learning modules and student guides newly developed by The Council for Agricultural Education. The intensive training included a focus on teaching methodology and engagement, teacher leadership and personal development, and how to build connections and influence in their school, community and state.

The Tri-State SAE Conference was open to secondary agricultural educators in Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska, and was sponsored by the Smoky Hill Education Service Center and the Tri-State Consortium for Agricultural Education. Three educational program consultants from the three states served as mentors to the participants, providing coaching and support throughout the conference.
