A Review of Activities in Internationalizing the Curriculum in Agricultural Education.
Moss, Jeffrey W.
Recommendations have been made for major curriculum changes in agricultural education, specifically agriculture programs at the secondary level. Suggested improvements include emphasis in agricultural science, agribusiness, marketing, management, and food production and processing. One change especially desired is placement of more emphasis on internationalizing the agricultural education curriculum. This paper reviews five programs developed for that purpose: (1) the National Council for Vocational and Technical Education in Agriculture; (2) Future Farmers of America International Programs; (3) Michigan State/North Carolina A&T University Project; (4) Texas A&M University's Instructional Materials Service Curricular Revisions; and (5) International Agriculture Course at Anderson Valley High School, Booneville, California. Each program is described and the impact of each is assessed. Sources for further information about each program are provided in footnotes to the report. (KC)
