4-H Education for Missouri
To see what we offer - check out our Table of Contents found here!
This course is not your average course as it contains project materials for topics from agronomy - woodworking! Each Module has a Lead Instructor or Lead Instructor Team that will be your guide throughout that content. Check out their welcome videos at the top of each module to get to know them. Each project will have its own objectives within that sub-module to follow for completion.
We have included course syllabus blocks with each course development site. In light of recent events, all courses must provide a diversity statement in the syllabus, and a netiquette statement if hosting an online discussion.
We value the voice of every student in this course. Our diversity as a group—in race, gender, sex, religion, language, ability, veteran status, place of origin—is an asset to our learning experience. As a result, we design inclusive lessons and assignments that provide you with the opportunity to speak and be heard, explore your own understanding, and encounter each other.

For a successful online course experience, clear, thoughtful communication is essential. Discussion forums and course communications are important venues for exchanging ideas and promoting learning. Your instructor and fellow participants wish to foster a safe and inclusive online learning environment. Constructive criticism and questions are encouraged; however, you will be expected to remain professional and courteous in all of your posts. You are encouraged to comment, question or critique an idea, but you are not to attack an individual.
Our differences, some of which are outlined in the University of Missouri's nondiscrimination statement, will add richness to this learning experience. Please consider that sarcasm and humor can be misconstrued in online interactions and generate unintended disruptions. Working as a community of learners, we can build a polite and respectful course atmosphere. As your instructor, I reserve the right to delete any forum posts or blog entries I deem to be inappropriate for the course.
