Abstract:The purpose of this summative content analysis was to examine and interpret components of agricultural education curriculum through a multicultural lens. In this content analysis, we analyzed four lessons from an agricultural education curriculum company that is utilized in many different states in the U.S. The research questions that guided this study include: (1) What is the frequency at which underrepresented populations are mentioned throughout the historical portions of the Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources; Animal, Plant, and Soil Sciences; and Natural Resources and Environmental Systems curriculum created by a widely-used Agriculture Education curriculum company? (2) How are these underrepresented populations depicted in the Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources; Animal, Plant, and Soil Sciences; and Natural Resources and Environmental Systems curriculum? (3) What is the priority regarding content about these underrepresented populations?
