Facilities for Agricultural Education Curriculums.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Agricultural Education Section.; Clemson Univ., SC. Vocational Education Media Center.
Expansion of the vocational agriculture program to include education for off-farm agricultural occupations has placed increasing demands on existing facilities for agricultural programs. The facility requirements of the new curriculums are often not met by the existing facilities. Vocational agriculture teachers, state supervisory staff members, and teacher educators assisted a vocational education media center in development of this publication for use by school administrators, architects, state department personnel, teachers, and others interested in setting up new programs. The document includes sections on: General Specifications, Production Agriculture, Agricultural Mechanics, Ornamental Horticulture and Floriculture, Agricultural Sales and Services and Agricultural Chemicals, Livestock Management, and Forestry and Pulpwood Production. Where more than one agricultural curriculum will be offered, modifications are necessary to meet specifications of all included curriculums. The document is illustrated and contain s tables of equipment requirements. Each curriculum section includes space requirements, classroom needs, equipment and supply needs, teacher office space, storage area needs, electrical requirements, library, washroom, laboratory needs, farm area needs, and suggested plans.
