I have sent CDs on Agroterrorism to your Region Coordinators to be
given out at your region meetings next week. This is an impressive
piece of software, and I urge every teacher to use this with their
MS/HS classes and Young Farmer groups. It comes in a plain white
wrapper, but don't let that fool you - it is really good material as
well as being timely. The CD is produced by the University of Kentucky
and is free for any educational use. You can project the program for
class use or make copies for each computer or put it on your computers'
hard drives. It is best used as a self-paced instructional unit. There
are two programs on the CD. One is for general audiences and the other
is for training adults. There are 5 modules of instruction and I am
estimating that it would take a HS student about 15 minutes to go
through each one in detail.
The Agroterrorism CD has a certificate that can be printed to give to
your students/YFs -- but, it has Kentucky all over it. We can design a
certificate especially for Georgia if there is interest and send it to
you e-mail. I think that if your classes or YFs go through this
training that it is a news-worthy item for the paper as well.
I am also sending the Region Coordinator the other CDs and DVDs, such
as Poultry, Water and Meats, that some of you have requested. If you
have requested these CDs/DVDs, there should be an envelope at your
region meeting with your name on it.
