The CASE Model
The Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education™ (CASE™) project develops a structured sequence of agriculture courses and serves as a model for elevating the rigor and relevance of agricultural education.
CASE is much more than just curriculum. In fact, CASE is a system of instructional support for the classroom teacher like no other resource in agricultural education today. The CASE model provides four major areas of support to promote solid classroom instruction using rigorous and relevant lessons while enhancing student learning.
The four areas of teacher support include curriculum, professional development, assessment, and certification. Each area contributes to the validity of CASE instructional materials by ensuring that teachers are properly equipped and trained and student learning is clearly accountable.
