NAAE Communities of Practice

NAAE's Communities of Practice is the only professional networking site designed specifically with agricultural educators in mind. It's a networking site, like Facebook, but with more emphasis on sharing resources and information.

Find lesson plans, worksheets, powerpoints, and ideas that have been shared by your peers in agricultural education. Have a problem or question? Ask it in our discussion forums. The site is organized into topic-based communities, so whether you're looking for help with your Animal Science class, wondering how to best organize your SAE's, or have a question for the profession, it's easy to find the right spot. Everything that's on Communities of Practice has been put there by other agricultural educators, so you know it's been tried in a real-world setting.
