United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
Interest in agricultural education continues to increase. The attempt to teach agriculture is no longer confined to the agricultural college and special agricultural school. Methods of teaching the most important facts and the elementary principles of agriculture are discussed in the meetings of most of our educational associations. There is a large demand from teachers and school officers for any printed matter on this subject that will help them in determining what to teach, and how to teach it, and how to organize schools and adjust courses of study so as to get the best results from the new studies without losing the best in the old. This bulletin consists of papers read before the American Association for the Advancement of Agricultural Teaching at its third annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, November 12, 1912. The papers presented in this bulletin are as follows: (1) The opportunity and responsibility for the preparation of teachers of agriculture (a) by agricultural colleges in their regular courses and classes (H. L. Rusell), (b) by agricultural colleges in special courses and classes organized for this work (Kenyon L. Butterfield); (2) The first year's work in agriculture in the high school (W. G. Hummel); (3) What relation should exist between the experiment stations and the secondary schools of agriculture (A. A. Soule); and (4) The use of land in connection with agricultural teaching (a) in special agricultural schools (C. G. Selvig), (b) in high schools (Rufus W. Stimson), (c) in elementary schools. Appended are: (1) Summary of information from special schools or current bulletins; (2) Demonstration work at Northwest School of Agriculture, Crookston, Minnesota; (3) List of 1912 suggestive topics for "summer practicum" work, Northwest School of Agriculture, Crookston, Minnesota; (4) Massachusetts State-aided vocational agricultural education: Examples of the income of pupils from farm work during attendance at school in 1912; and (5) Questionnaires sent out. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
