In Carrie Foster’s AP Human Geography class, students complete a project that she calls Farmers Only Speed Dating on January 16th. Each person was assigned a style of farming and told to design a poster about their farming. Then, they are partnered up to learn about the other types of farming. “Each student specializes in one area of farming. By speed dating they get to teach it to each other and then also try to figure out who they’re the most compatible with by farming method, land, and climate type,” Foster said. They switch partners every few minutes, hence the term “speed dating.”
