The Agricultural Literacy and Advocacy Model consists of four steps: plan, develop, do and reflect. These modules introduce students to the concept of advocating to four key target audiences: peers, the community, elected officials and elementary students. Each accompanying experience guides students through the planning and execution of an activity and event.
ADVOCACY EXPERIENCE PLANNING GUIDES
This module introduces students to the concept of advocacy through learning current agricultural facts and definitions that are critical in initiating agricultural advocacy at any level.
This includes understanding elementary students and their perceptions of agriculture. Successful advocates ensure their messaging is appropriate and direct to their intended audience.
