About Teach Ag Ed
Agricultural education teaches students about agriculture, food, and natural resources. Through these subjects, agriculture educators teach students a wide variety of skills, including science, math, communications, leadership, management, and technology.

Agricultural Education uses a three-circle model of instruction. These are classroom and laboratory instruction, leadership development, and work-based learning. The successful integration of each of these three components results in a strong program that produces well rounded individuals who are prepared to be leaders in agriculture, business, and industry.
