The Bond County Ag in the Classroom Program, Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom and the IAA Foundation have announced the Summer Ag. Institute Teacher Workshop is planned for Greenville, Illinois, on June 18, 2018.

Teachers are urged to attend this workshop to receive free innovative teaching materials, share in exciting hands-on experiences, learn about grants for books & projects, and attend fun field trips. “Our teacher grants are an added bonus for teachers looking to incorporate new and creative ideas into their classrooms during these financially challenging, school funding times,” said Kevin Daugherty, Education Director, Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom.

Teachers are urged to contact the Bond County Ag in the Classroom literacy coordinator for more information on the workshop and to get ideas and assistance in applying for their grants. “Bond County AITC offers a variety of topics easy for teachers to incorporate into their current curriculum,” said Emily Hartmann, Bond County AITC Coordinator.
