Why teachers are important to Nutrients for Life?
Nutrients for Life is dedicated in bringing educational resources to help teachers educate youth on a variety of important topics regarding sustainability and modern agriculture.
To help connect teachers to the Foundation, the Teacher Ambassador project was launched. These Teacher Ambassadors, who are currently located in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, act as a representative for teachers around the country who wish to teach scientific topics to youth.
With their knowledge of the materials and their experience putting it to work, these teachers provide valuable insight to help refine content and make things as meaningful to students. Working with them we are able to gauge the needs of educators, receive input and feedback on our resources, and establish linkages between our resources and the curriculum.
What NFL offers teachers?
In these pages, we introduce major scientific and social topics related to plant productivity and feeding the world, supported by our High School and Middle School curriculum. You can use these as topics for inquiry to achieve your teaching goals. We also provide additional resources to help busy educators both introduce and enrich the topics.
