New Hampshire Agricultural Teachers' Association.; New Hampshire Univ., Durham. Agricultural Education Program.; New Hampshire State Dept. of Education, Concord. Vocational-Technical Education Div.
Developed by teacher educators in cooperation with state supervisors of agricultural education, this curriculum guide is for use by teachers, teacher educators, guidance departments, and school administrators. The 4-year curriculum was designed for vocational agriculture students in grades nine through 12 interested in occupations in production agriculture, ornamental horticulture, forestry, agricultural resources, agricultural mechanics, agricultural supplies, agricultural products, and other agriculture. The procedure suggested by the authors for curriculum implementation includes: (1) appointing an advisory committee, (2) studying the school area to determine needs, (3) developing long-range goals, and (4) determining the specializations to be offered. Course content for each occupational area is outlined with the level of specialization included. Introductory material is provided for ninth and 10th grade students and specialized material for 11th and 12th grade students. Supplementary material includes a 118 item bibliography. (DM)
