A thriving need & growing solution.
We’ve gotten increasing number of emails/calls from teachers, principals, volunteers and Extension faculty/staff from different parts of the country.
Most of these are requests are training workshops for teachers and also for our local Extension faculty/staff/volunteers that can support them. Although there are many, many locally-led workshops regularly happening across the country, it is difficult to meet the demand – especially when those requests are for training workshops for smaller audience of teachers – so, over the past year, the JMG Program Office has been hard at work to meet the need.
On March 1, we are launching the Plant Growth & Development Junior Master Gardener Online Curriculum & Teacher Training.
This new, self-directed and engaging training course for teachers, volunteers and Extension serves as a dynamic professional development opportunity for as well as a new, multimedia curricular option for the Plant Growth and Development chapter from the JMG Level One Teacher/Leader Guide (Grades 3-5) . Those completing this course will be equipped to teach fun, effective lessons from each of the module/content areas and lead students to earn their Junior Master Gardener Certification in Plant Growth & Development.
Later this week, we’ll share how you can be involved in development of the next online course built around the research and evidence-based Learn, Grow, Eat & Go! curriculum.
