EXPERIENCE PROGRAMS CONDUCTED IN VOCATIONAL HORTICULTURE PROGRAMS IN OHIO HIGH SCHOOLS IN 1966.
NIRODE, BERNARD R.
A STUDY OF OCCUPATIONAL EXPERIENCES FOR VOCATIONAL HORTICULTURE STUDENTS WAS DESIGNED TO DETERMINE THE KINDS OF HORTICULTURE PROGRAMS AND THE TYPES AND SCOPE OF EXPERIENCE PROGRAMS OFFERED AND OBTAIN TEACHER APPRAISALS OF THE EXPERIENCE PROGRAMS WHICH SHOULD BE REQUIRED AND THE FACILITIES NEEDED TO PROVIDE SATISFACTORY PROGRAMS. OF 25 SCHOOLS OFFERING VOCATIONAL HORTICULTURE, 22 REPORTED 509 STUDENTS ENROLLED IN VOCATIONAL HORTICULTURE WHICH REPRESENTED ABOUT 4 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL OHIO VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE ENROLLMENT. TEN SCHOOLS OFFERED 1-YEAR, 7 OFFERED 2-YEAR, 4 OFFERED 3-YEAR PROGRAMS, AND 1 COMBINED THE COURSE WITH AGRICULTURE. NINE SELECTED TOPICS WERE TAUGHT IN SOME GRADE LEVEL BY AT LEAST 70 PERCENT OF THE TEACHERS, AND SOME TOPICS, SUCH AS LANDSCAPING, WERE TAUGHT AT ALL GRADE LEVELS. EXPERIENCE PROGRAMS WERE CONDUCTED AT HOME FOR 51 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS, IN COOPERATING BUSINESSES FOR 27 PERCENT, AND AT SCHOOL FOR 14 PERCENT. NO EXPERIENCE PROGRAM WAS REPORTED FOR 8 PERCENT OF THE STUDENTS. TEACHERS RECOMMENDED 500 SQUARE FEET FOR HOME FLOWER OR GARDEN PROJECTS AND 10,000 SQUARE FEET FOR NURSERIES, AND 200 HOURS OF EXPERIENCE PER YEAR FOR HOME AND SCHOOL PROJECTS AND 300 HOURS FOR COMMERCIAL PLACEMENT. RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNED A 2-YEAR MINIMUM LENGTH FOR VOCATIONAL HORTICULTURE PROGRAMS, USE OF A CURRICULUM GUIDE TO DETERMINE THE SUITABLE GRADE LEVEL FOR DIFFERENT TOPICS, EXPERIENCE PROGRAMS WITH MINIMUM STANDARDS AVAILABLE TO ALL STUDENTS, AND MINIMUM FACILITIES REQUIREMENTS. THIS IS A M.S. FIELD STUDY SUBMITTED TO THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY. (JM)
