Baldock, Kalynn; Murphrey, Theresa Pesl – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2020
Inquiry-based learning supports constructivism theory and has been used by both Comenius (1592-1670) and Dewey (1859-1952) in early educational settings. Incorporating inquiry-based instruction into the agriculture classroom, while beneficial, brings with it challenges for teachers and learners. Numerous studies have been conducted to examine…

Ensuring food security for a growing populace amidst an aging farmer population together with a decline in youth engagement in agriculture remains a global challenge. This is more distressing for developing countries, such as Uganda, that rely on subsistence farming to meet their food production demands, including job-creation for at least 75% of…

Bradford, Timothy, Jr.; Hock, Gaea; Greenhaw, Laura; Kingery, William L. – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2019
Currently, less than 3% of the U.S. population lives on a farm (Riedel, 2006). Technological advances and mechanization coupled with other societal factors, have led to the decline of an agriculturally literate population (Kovar & Ball, 2013). Blair (2009) identified one strategy for increasing agricultural literacy as implementing education…

Sheehan, C. Zane; Moore, Lori L. – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2019
As novice teachers gain experience, they are more efficacious and likely to overcome adversity. The more authentic, rigorous, and frequent the experience in preservice methods coursework, the better prepared candidates are to teach. We used a mixed methods, convergent, nested design to examine the Teacher Self-Efficacy (TSE) of 21 SBAE preservice…

Baker, Marshall A.; Robinson, J. Shane – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2019
Understanding the teaching and learning paradigm is a relentless search for educators. Because individual students bring their own learning style preferences to the learning environment, teachers are asked to consider and even adjust their teaching to these preferences to improve student learning. In Kolb's (1984) experiential learning theory,…

Roberts, Richie; Edwards, M. Craig – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2018
Service-learning's (SL) discourse is written as a story of victory, achievement, and transformation in school-based, agricultural education (SBAE). The resources dedicated to improving both learning and communities through SL can be significant. Little work, however, has been put forth to examine this victory narrative's underlying assumptions and…

Baker, Marshall A.; Robinson, J. Shane – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2016
Experiential learning is an important pedagogical approach used in secondary agricultural education. Though anecdotal evidence supports the use of experiential learning, a paucity of empirical research exists supporting the effects of this approach when compared to a more conventional teaching method, such as direct instruction. Therefore, the…

Urban school districts are viable recruitment sources for higher education in agriculture and have the ability to play a significant role in efforts to increase agricultural education program numbers at the secondary level. Secondary school increases should lead to growth in agricultural college enrollments across the country. Increasing…

Thoron, Andrew C.; Burleson, Sarah E. – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2014
United States science scores have remained stable over the past 12 years, and as a result secondary school students have been deemed less proficient than international peers. Additionally, there has been increased pressure for accountability from both teachers and students. This highly competitive performance-based classroom environment has…
