Resource Guide to Educational Materials about Agriculture. A Project of Agriculture in the Classroom. 1996 Edition.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC. Office of the Secretary.
This resource guide provides a list of materials available from public and private sources on agriculture and related issues. More than 300 organizations and publishers were asked what materials they were producing that could help regular K-12 classroom teachers incorporate more information about agriculture into their instruction. This guide is comprised of those materials. The materials are divided into four sections: (1) printed materials (books, pamphlets, activity and coloring books, and packets or kits of printed materials); (2) audiovisuals, posters and teaching kits (slide sets, videotapes, transparencies, and computer software); (3) resource guides or catalogs; and (4) miscellaneous. In addition to a title index, the guide contains indexes for the content areas of Agriculture and History, the Geography of Agriculture, Agricultural Science and Technology, Agricultural Economics and Society, Agriculture and the World, Careers, Agriculture and Public Policy, Agriculture and the Environment, Nutrition and Food Safety, Materials with Guides for Teachers, and State-Related Materials. Items are listed by title, publisher, and grade level. Format, a description of the content, and price and ordering information are included for almost every entry. (PVD)
