CASE is an ambitious project started by the National Council for Agricultural Education in 2007. The project goal is to implement a national curriculum for secondary agricultural education that provides a high level of educational experiences to enhance the rigor and relevance of agriculture, food, and natural resources (AFNR) subject matter. Besides elevating the rigor of AFNR knowledge and skills, CASE provides purposeful enhancement of science, mathematics, and English language understanding.

CASE develops curriculum utilizing science inquiry for lesson foundation and concepts are taught using activity-, project-, and problem-based instructional strategies. In addition to the curriculum aspect of CASE, the project ensures quality teaching by providing extensive professional development for teachers that leads to certification.

The final component of CASE is assessment. CASE curriculum is designed to promote a common understanding of agricultural concepts by all CASE students. By providing instruction based on common concepts, national assessments of agricultural education programs can be accomplished in ways that are valid and meaningful.
