Anthony Wayne High School agriculture teacher selected for national educator award

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Whitney Short, agricultural educator at Anthony Wayne High School in Whitehouse, Ohio, is one of only six individuals nationwide who received the 2017 National Agriscience Teacher of the Year Award. The award was presented in December at the National Association of Agricultural Educators’ annual convention in Nashville.The National Agriscience Teacher of the Year award recognizes teachers who have inspired and enlightened their students through engaging and interactive lessons in the science of agriculture.Although it is located at Anthony Wayne High School, the agriculture program is actually a satellite of the Penta Career Center. When Short realized that enrollment was declining, she renewed student interest by creating an agriculture biotechnology pathway. Through the new course of study, students have the opportunity to explore biotech in both animal and plant systems. The popularity of the new pathway has led Short to steadily increase science-based agriculture offerings at Anthony Wayne.An integral piece of the agriculture program at Anthony Wayne is project-based learning. In the Chicken Challenge, students conduct an experiment to evaluate a broiler chicken’s rate of weight gain using a variety of feeds. Students care for the chickens until they are ready for butchering, which is done with student help at a certified processing facility. The project teaches students about food safety, technical writing, animal welfare, marketing and communication. Through these kinds of rigorous and relevant experiences students leave Short’s program better prepared for college and careers.last_img read more
