As many of you are aware, SAE renewal is a focus and I wanted to share a new resource that approaches SAE education through:

1. SAE Resources....a set of progressive videos or if needed PDF files (using the upper right option to turn the page to all PDF files) through a new Essential Elements of an SAE document and then the resources of time and money.  Also, this connects to each AFNR pathway through an outline and then continues onto student SAE examples.  If this approach is not desirable, the typical types of SAEs are listed and relate videos shown as a section on the home page.

2. Explore Your SAE....this is a flipped classroom approach to teaching SAE.  Rather than define SAE to student, each student can develop a simple login and explore their SAE through a set of simple questions that help them find their SAE interest based on their responses, then develop a draft SAE Plan and even print a one page summary or return to print it at a later date.  Also, they can view SAEs in their program, state and national perspective of SAE interest and hours per week available from others in the statistics page.

Also, on the Explore SAE teachers can view all their students explorations through either their AET login or from AgCN, and select "Explore SAE" on the left menu.  Simply list each student that has explored as SAE and gives the teacher a link to their report or the ability to delete a student that has a bogus experience.  

3. Teacher Tools - this is a location for class activities and teachers comments (videos) regarding how SAEs are a part of their program.  We are hoping to expand student and teacher example videos, so if you know of any in your state that have innovative projects or ideas, please let me know.

This site is lead by Roger Hanagriff and John Rayfield of Texas A&M University.

Please review, and share any edits you may see, questions you have for the site and resources you think that should be added.  We have tried to organize in a manner that aligns records and FFA awards into a common theme or organization.  I am hoping that the site can provide resources teachers can use.  Thanks for reviewing and hope this resource helps in the SAE discussion.  Roger
