Ag Literacy Adventure with an Ag Teacher and an English Teacher: National AITC Conference

Literacy skills are life skills. Every teacher in every content area needs to consider themselves a "reading" teacher. But what if all teachers also thought of themselves as an ag teacher? Join Illinois AITC staff Lee Deal, a former ag teacher, and Chris Wyant, a former English teacher, as they explore innovative ways to apply literacy skills normally found in an ELA classroom to high interest texts, topics, and lessons normally found in an ag classroom. They'll share ways to connect these compelling reading and writing activities to all content areas and a variety of grade levels.
