What are lesson plans?

Lesson plans are included with the EUSP.  The lesson plans include a printable student workbook, precision ag data that is used with the student workbook, and a teacher guide that provides the instructor with helpful suggestions including the answer key for each chapter.  Each chapter provides students a hands-on learning experience with precision agriculture and farm business management.  Lesson plans are updated every year to match the most current version.

What type of training is required?

No training is required.  The lesson plans are designed so that classroom or online training can be avoided by the instructor.  Each chapter offers step-by-step screen shots and detailed information on how to perform each task.  We even included precision ag data so that you don’t have to find it yourself.  There is little effort on your part.
