PATHWAYS TO HORTICULTURE - HIGH SCHOOL CURRICULUM

 

Horticulture Curriculum for High School Educators

The MNLA Foundation is proud to announce an invaluable resource for high school teachers; Pathways Through Horticulture.  A free curriculum that addresses the importance and significant value of horticulture and gives detailed lessons for botany and plant growth, plant materials, floriculture, landscape design and maintenance, and careers. This curriculum guide provides materials for teachers to use in developing a 1- or 2-year course in horticulture occupations.  The program prepares students with skills that allow them to continue their educational at a two or four-year college or start working in the field directly.

In addition, members of the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association are embracing relationships with all students throughout Minnesota to encourage them to consider education and careers in the green industry. Local members are available to assist with classroom presentations, field trips, demonstrations and technical assistance to connect the classroom to real life experience.  Connect with us to find out more!

The curriculum currently includes:

Each module will take 2 to 15 hours, depending on how much depth is desired. Each module includes a script for the teacher, suggested classroom activities, PowerPoint presentation and / or reading lessons, and suggestions on where to go for more information. Topics include:

Contact Paulette Sorenson, paulette@mnla.biz or call 651-633-4987.  A complete printed manual is available for $50.00.
