Agricultural Education. Multicultural Nonsexist Education in Iowa Schools.
Andersen, Tom; Barta, Sheryl
This pamphlet is an aid for local agricultural education instructors and committees in implementing the agricultural components of their school districts' multicultural, nonsexist education plans. Contents include a list of definitions, a discussion of the rationale and philosophy, and the text of the legal authority for multicultural, nonsexist education. Four goals are suggested as a model for the multicultural, nonsexist education program. Each goal is accompanied by a set of objectives specifically pertaining to agricultural education. A self-evaluation checklist is then provided for use as a general guide in reviewing a curriculum program to determine how consistent it is with the basic concepts of multicultural, nonsexist education. Sections of the checklist relate to curriculum structure, curriculum content, instructional materials, and teaching strategies. An annotated bibliography lists resource materials that are recommended for agricultural education teachers striving to implement multicultural, nonsexist programs. Another listing provides names, addresses, and telephone numbers of agencies or persons that may provide assistance, ideas, and information to schools striving to implement multicultural, nonsexist agricultural education programs.
