Infusing a Global Perspective into the Study of Agriculture: Student Activities. Volume 1. Developed by the National Task Force on International Agricultural Education.
Martin, Robert A., Ed.
The need to develop an awareness of the global nature of the agriculture industry is one of the major issues that students must begin to understand. A packet of instructional materials was developed to help teachers infuse a global perspective into units of instruction about agriculture and related topics. This document offers a series of activities that can be integrated in the curriculum. The activities included: (1) the rice-distribution system in Japan; (2) comparative agricultural production practices; (3) comparative horticultural practices; (4) comparative quality standards in agricultural marketing and distributing; (5) agricultural trade and culture; (6) food products and culture; (7) American and Japanese supervised experience programs; (8) comparing the FFA & FFJ Organizations; (9) commodities marketing; and (10) Japanese rice trade policy. A 14-item list of selected references and materials also is included. (DB)
