AgDARE: Curriculum Development

All simulations included in this curriculum were field tested, revised, and tested again prior to their inclusion in the unit. Over eleven hundred agriculture students, in 21 Kentucky, Iowa, and Mississippi schools, participated in the development and testing of the simulations. The remaining learning activities were developed by experts in agricultural health and safety who also have teaching experience.

As you use materials from this collection, please keep us informed about what you have used, for what purposes, and with what degree of effectiveness. We also welcome your ideas for optional learning activities and unit revisions. Please direct additional comments or inquiries to Deborah Reed by letter or e-mail.

What you do every day in the classroom is important. We value and respect your contributions to enriching the lives of children and helping them become better citizens and in this case, safer farmers. Remember that one injury prevented is worth the time spent in the classroom on this topic.
