Click here to download the Beef in the Classroom: Teacher Resource Manual
The Beef in the Classroom (BITC) Teacher Resource Manual is curriculum approved and covers everything you will need to teach Basic Meat Cookery 2100. It includes student assignments, exams, answer keys, industry information, recipes, games, and a list of other helpful resources.
Alberta Beef Producers (ABP) encourages teachers to use this resource to make teaching beef as easy as possible and to pass along the most pertinent and up-to-date information on the cattle industry.
High School Foods Beef Presentation
Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary, and Lethbridge HIGH SCHOOLS may qualify for a Beef in the Classroom Presentation. A professional nutritionist is available in these cities to come into the classroom and deliver an 80 minute beef presentation. The session provides an overview of the cattle industry, healthy tips for eating and preparing beef, cooking techniques for different cuts and concludes with a beef cooking demonstration. Interactive games, fun prizes and delicious beef samples engage the students. For more information contact the ABP office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grade 4 Students in Alberta
The Classroom Agriculture Program (CAP) is a free, one hour, hands-on presentation about agriculture. Volunteers go into grade four classrooms and teach the students where their food comes from and the importance of agriculture in their daily lives.
Each volunteer is supplied with educational material that is compatible with grade four curriculum and essentially they tell real-life stories, show hands-on props (such as beef by-products or grain samples) and play fun agriculture activities. Presentations are based on volunteer’s availability; however, all students registered before the deadline will receive an activity booklet and teachers will receive a resource kit. Resource material left with the teacher enables the class to continue talking and learning about agriculture even after the one hour presentation has concluded. CAP is an opportunity for rural and urban elementary students to learn about the tradition and future of agriculture. Both the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, and the Minister of Education have endorsed CAP.
Teachers must register between September and December of each year. Volunteers must register before February of each school year. Presentations are delivered between March and June.
In every subject there are reasons to talk about beef or the cattle industry. If you would like to incorporate a beef message into your teaching, ABP has nutrition pamphlets, recipes and fact sheets that can give any subject a little kick! Contact email@example.com with a description of the class size and subject matter you are teaching.
If there is an event, conference, seminar, etc. that requires a Dietitian or Home Economist to perform a beef presentation, ABP can help. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
