THE ROLE OF PREVOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE IN THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS OF NEW YORK STATE.
AL-SALMAN, MUHSIN HUSSAIN
THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS TO DESCRIBE EXISTING JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL PREVOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE COURSES AND DETERMINE WHAT SELECTED EDUCATORS IN AGRICULTURE BELIEVE THE OBJECTIVES AND COURSE CONTENT SHOULD BE. LISTS OF 17 OBJECTIVES AND 103 COURSE CONTENT ITEMS IN NINE SUBJECT AREAS WERE ASSEMBLED. A JURY OF 17 MEMBERS RANKED THE OBJECTIVES AND RESPONDED TO CONTENT ITEMS ON A FOUR-POINT SCALE. A RANDOMLY SELECTED GROUP OF 22 VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE TEACHERS ALSO RESPONDED TO CONTENT ITEMS. COMPOSITE RANK ORDER WAS USED TO ESTABLISH THAT THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT OBJECTIVES WERE TO (1) ACQUAINT STUDENTS WITH AGRICULTURAL PROBLEMS, CAREER POSSIBILITIES, AND INFORMATION SOURCES, (2) PROVIDE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE FARMING AND OTHER AGRICULTURAL OCCUPATIONS IN A COMMUNITY, AND (3) DEVELOP UNDERSTANDING AND APPRECIATION FOR THE IMPORTANCE OF AGRICULTURE IN PRESENT AND FUTURE LIVING AND TO STUDENTS AS PRODUCERS AND CONSUMERS. PERCEIVED EXPECTATIONS FOR COURSE CONTENT ITEMS VARIED BETWEEN AND WITHIN BOTH JURY AND TEACHER GROUPS. THIS PH.D. THESIS, WHICH WAS SUBMITTED TO CORNELL UNIVERSITY IS AVAILABLE AS 65-6982 FOR $3.00 ON MICROFILM AND FOR $6.80 AS XEROXED COPY FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, INC., 300 NORTH ZEEB ROAD, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48106.
