Welcome to the Food Land & People Online Course!

In need of professional development credit? Enroll in the Food, Land & People (FLP) online course! The course has been developed to contextualize learning by using "food, land and people" (agriculture) and research-based teaching strategies while meeting mandatory core curriculum standards in science, social studies, geography, and nutrition. Enrollees must be practicing teachers and have a year to complete the course requirements.

Description

The Food, Land & People (FLP) course has been developed to increase elementary and secondary teacher/student knowledge about agriculture (farm to fork) and the environment using research-based teaching strategies while meeting statewide mandatory core curriculum standards in the areas of science, social studies, geography, nutrition, and career and technical education. Enrollees must be practicing teachers or engaged in an informal teaching situation as the course requirements require teaching and interacting with students.

Course Information

Teachers will be able to use the numerous classroom resources including lesson plans, kits, bulletin boards, DVDs/videos, books, software, maps, and PowerPoint presentations on the course website to meet requirements. In addition to meeting State core curriculum guidelines, the resources have been designed to promote environmental awareness, critical thinking, problem-solving skills, cooperative attitudes, and an appreciation for cultural differences. FLP is an independent study (yearlong course); enrollees may take up to one year to complete course requirements.

What teachers say:

Thanks for your encouragement, I have never taken a class online before, and it is kinda scary for me.:-) I am glad I chose this class to be my first online class because there is so much support. Thank you! Sonda Smith, Traverse Elementary

I have really enjoyed this online class and may take more online classes in the future because this was really easy to navigate and get around. It was also self-explanatory. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to learn more about agriculture and I plan on implementing agriculture into the curriculum any way I can. Julie Thorngren, Snowcrest Junior High

Thank you for all your thoughtful comments on my instructional hours posting and reading reflections. I appreciate the suggestions that will improve my instruction. Karen Roesler, Adele C. Young Intermediate School
