TERRA FIRMA. Threshold of Educational Reform Restructuring Agriculture for Inner City Related Motivation and Accomplishments. Final Report.
Fulmer, John L.
The report describes the first year (1974-75) activities and accomplishments of a project to provide a cooperative-based vocational agriculture program for secondary students in Anniston, Alabama. The overall objectives were to provide instruction in livestock production and horticulture, leadership training, participatory experience on a real farm, and tours to provide orientation relating to agricultural experiences. The project was subdivided into six operations that functioned concurrently: curriculum development, student recruitment, resource development, public relations, solicitation of funds, and evaluation. The report includes a breakdown and description of the procedures for each of these areas of operation. In evaluation, a brief statement is made to indicate the accomplishment of the objectives. The problems encountered are mentioned and suggestions for continued development are offered. Over one-half of the document consists of appended publicity materials and project correspondence. An outline of the swine program is also appended. Included in the document is a three-month report outlining plans and preparation for the second year of the project. (NJ)
