Liu, Laura B.; Russell, Taylor – Science Education and Civic Engagement, 2022
This study examines farming practices across regions as "funds of knowledge" that may be integrated into K-12 curricula and instruction. "Funds of knowledge," as conceptualized by Moll, Amanti, Neff, and González (1992), include the knowledge students bring from their families and home communities to the classroom, and serve as…

McCubbins, O. P.; Anderson, Ryan G.; Paulsen, Thomas H.; Wells, Trent – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2016
Agricultural mechanics is an important component of a well-rounded school-based agricultural education (SBAE) program. Within agricultural mechanics courses lies a plethora of topics and skills to be covered. Adequate tools and equipment are vital in preparing students to fill an expanding, 21st century workforce. The issue of inadequate teaching…

Gómez-Galán, Marta; Carreño-Ortega, Ángel; López-Martínez, Javier; Callejón-Ferre, Ángel-Jesús – Education Sciences, 2018
Tractors are used to perform jobs that require different types of agricultural tools to be attached to their rear, to their front, or both. These tools may need to be dragged, towed, or suspended above ground, and sometimes require a power supply; this is usually obtained via a hydraulic system or from the tractor's power take-off system. When…

Schafbuch, Morgan L.; Vincent, Stacy K.; Mazur, Joan; Watson, Jennifer; Westneat, Susan – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2016
Rural youth in poverty stricken Appalachian communities are the highest at-risk population for tractor rollover accidents (Cole, 2007). The Apprenticeship of Observation theory (Lortie, 1975) concludes that the "apprentice" learns from watching those perceived to be the teacher and their work and so mimic their actions. Thus, farm youth…
