Abstract

This paper will explore how a collaborative process for developing high school agriculture curriculum was developed between American partners and teachers at Betty Memorial Institute in the rural Tewar District, Grand Cape Mount County, in the Republic of Liberia. The process used is a multidisciplinary approach, where American contributors are researching areas of culture, history and local influences on agriculture in order to become informed partners. The methods introduced provide for curriculum that will fit a complex environment that exists in rural Liberia. Also, this approach allows for relevant contribution to the Liberian teachers, who are the primary developers of the curriculum.
