Integrating the higher levels of cognitive learning with the process of agricultural writing is vital. This study investigated the behavior of a professional agricultural writer and how that information was transferred to students through four cognitive levels of learning.

The agricultural writing framework is based on the cognitive behaviors of planning, translating, and reviewing as well as the social behaviors of dealing with individuals and organization. Those behaviors were incorporated into the learning levels of cognition: remembering, processing, creating, and evaluating (Newcomb & Trefz, 1987). The investigator recommends a number of specific steps in designing learning objectives, activities, and evaluation for teaching novice agricultural writers.
