Ag teachers,

I try to use a variety of video/DVD materials in my classroom to enhance
instruction.  While I do not use all these videos, all the time, or even
in their entirety – I have found that they usually stimulate good
classroom discussions with my students.  Also, rather than spending an
entire class period on a video, sometimes we watch a video over a period
of several days.

I have created worksheets for all the videos that I use in class and I
would be happy to share them with you.  If you are interested, please
send me an email and I will forward you a copy of the student video
sheet and the teacher answer sheet.

FEATURED VIDEO/DVD OF THE WEEK:

A Different Kind of Grocery Store – 60 Minutes  (2006) – An episode of
60 minutes that features a close look at Whole Foods Market and
interviews its founder and CEO, John Mackey.  The episode also looks at
the organic food movement.

Reviews from Amazon.com
“John Mackey, the founder of the Whole Foods Market, believes you are
what you eat, and judging by the success of his 184-store chain,
shoppers agree. Now Mackey wants to go beyond high-quality and organic
foods, and soon will be offering meat from animals who were treated
humanely during their lives. Mackey is an unusual tycoon -- a
competitive and determined man whose hobbies are yoga, meditation, and
the care of his chickens.”

You may purchase a DVD of A Different Kind of Grocery Store  through
Amazon.com.  It is $ 17.95.  Here is a link:
