Agricultural educators are in a unique position when it comes to approaching globalization and multicultural diversity in the classroom. Agriculture is rich with diversity as food and fibers are produced in all corners of the world. It is the perfect environment to share cultural diversity and investigate other ways of life while investigating food and fiber production. agriCULTURE is a curriculum designed to provide teachers with a resource to bring multicultural diversity into the classroom through the exploration of agriculture around the globe. The general objectives are to:
1) Increase cultural competency among secondary students.
2) Introduce students to agricultural products from around the world.
3) Challenge student’s current perspectives on global cultures.
4) Develop an appreciation for global cultures.
The curriculum is delivered on a web-based platform and can be accessed free of charge.
