Appropriate for introductory as well as advanced classes in agricultural teacher education.
The third edition of Foundations of Agricultural Education continues and expands on the major goal of the book: to introduce future agricultural educators to their profession and support professional development of those now in the profession. This book focuses on current content, terminology, practices, and theory while giving historical and philosophical foundations to agricultural education. Examples and terms have been used that will help to keep the book current. The overall purpose is to provide a foundational resource, one that broadly covers each element necessary to be a teacher of agricultural education. Incumbent teachers will also find information useful to them as they go about their roles as professionals in agricultural education.
