Mazurkewicz, Melissa; Harder, Amy; Roberts, T. Grady – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2012
Higher education institutions are attempting to use teaching farms to provide hands-on learning experiences to students, but there is a lack of research on the degree of cognitive engagement at teaching farms. Kolb's model provided the theoretical framework for assessing evidence of experiential learning in courses using teaching farms.…

Easterly, R. G., III; Myers, Brian E. – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2011
Educating students with special needs in school based agricultural education (SBAE) is a problem that should be addressed. While many students in SBAE classes have special needs, contradicting research exists establishing the best method of instruction for students with special needs. Inquiry-based instruction shows some promise, but little is…
