Resource Guide to Educational Materials about Agriculture. A Project of Agriculture in the Classroom.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC. Office of the Secretary.
Designed to help teachers bring more information about agriculture into their classrooms, this resource guide provides a listing of materials relating to agriculture available from private and public sources. It describes materials available from more than 300 organizations and publishers who responded to a request regarding materials they were producing that would help regular classroom teachers, grades K-12, incorporate more information about agriculture into their teaching. The listings are divided into four sections: printed materials (books, pamphlets, activity and coloring books, and packets or kits of printed materials); audiovisuals and kits (films, filmstrips, slide sets, videotapes, and transparencies, some with accompanying print materials); resource guides or catalogues; and miscellaneous (posters, wall charts, and computer software). The items are listed by title, publisher/producer, grade level, and format. They include a description of the content and price and ordering information for almost all entries. A table of contents lists items alphabetically by title within each of the four sections. A title index is followed by these content area indexes: agriculture and history, the geography of agriculture, agricultural science and technology, agricultural economics and society, agriculture and the world, careers, agriculture and public policy, activity and color books, and materials with guides for teachers. Another index lists state-related materials. (YLB)
