Jeremy Grove, an agriscience teacher at East Technical High School in Cleveland, attended the Feed the World workshop and shares his experience with those materials:
I am utilizing the Feed the World curriculum specifically with my 7th grade class and I have pulled lessons to teach with my Animal & Plant Science courses at the high school level. We have completed the pGLO Bacterial Transformation lab and we are preparing to conduct the ethanol labs once I receive a shipment of supplies.
Having the Feed the World curriculum has been extremely helpful in deciding a pathway to teach my seventh grade classes. I have the students for a semester at a time, and what better curriculum to teach than this? Teaching an urban population is much different than a rural population. Though the students enjoy some parts of the lessons and labs, they were not expecting to conduct math. “Mr. Grove, you’re not the math teacher; why are we doing this?” Questions like this have led to conversations about the importance of STEM in all of agriculture.
