First Assignment: Prior to the first class, students are to complete a brief writing assignment (a MAXIMUM of 2-3 pages). I want you to answer three important questions that will help me gauge how familiar students are with agriculture and the concept of agricultural law. There is no right or wrong answer. Everyone will receive full credit for completing the assignment and submitting it to me by the due date. No research is required for this assignment. This is an OPINION piece to be completed on your own. Please do not discuss this assignment with any of your classmates until after it is due.
Your response should be typed, double spaced, 12 point font with 1” margins in a Word or PDF format and emailed email@example.com by 6:00pm on Monday, January 29, 2018. Please complete this assignment BEFORE doing the reading for the first class.
Please answer the following three questions:
1. Define agricultural law. What do you believe agricultural law entails?
2. Describe your interest in agricultural law.
3. Describe your familiarity with agriculture. Did you grow up on a farm? Do you have family that farms? Were you involved in FFA or 4-H? If your only familiarity with agriculture is living and going to school in Ada, that’s ok! Just tell me.
Also, read pages 1-30 AFTER completing this short assignment.
