In-Service Development of Vocational Teachers for Competencies in Non-Farm Agricultural Occupations. Vocational Agriculture Special Project Report.
Snowden, Obed L.; McMinn, J. H.
In order to help vocational agriculture teachers develop competencies needed in giving instruction in off-farm agricultural occupations, 10 teachers were selected from Mississippi schools to help develop training programs, to conduct a home community survey, and to engage in a work experience program. After completion of their training, each participant initiated a program in his own school to train workers for agribusiness occupations. However, the placement of students in the training stations was not completely successful due to a lack of student interest and work scheduling problems. (JS)
