Teach Agriculture Ohio
Teach Agriculture Ohio is an initiative of the Ohio FFA Foundation that works to increase the recruitment and retention of agricultural educators in the state.
Ohio Corn & Wheat and the Ohio Beef Council are ensuring the future of agricultural education in Ohio is vibrant.
Agricultural education teaches students about agriculture, food and natural resources. Through these subjects, agricultural educators teach students a wide variety of skills, including science, math, communications, leadership, management and technology.
Agricultural education is delivered through three interconnected components:
- Classroom or laboratory instruction.
- Experiential learning — Learning experiences that usually take place outside of the classroom, supervised by the agriculture instructor.
- Leadership education — delivered through student organizations such as the National FFA Organization, the National Young Farmer Education Association, National Postsecondary Agricultural Student Organization and others.
Many high school agriculture programs use FFA to enhance the leadership and experiential learning portions of their program. To learn more about Ohio FFA and its influence on agricultural education, visit www.ohioffa.org.
