Agricultural Careers. A Curriculum Guide.
Lark, Floyd J.; And Others
This curriculum guide is designed to orient students to their own characteristics in relation to agricultural occupations, to the occupations available in the broad field of agriculture, and to the decision-making process used in choosing an occupation. An introduction provides an overview of the instructional units, recommends supplementary materials, and presents ideas, check lists, and worksheets for using audio-visual aids, fieldtrips, resource people, and skill trials. Ten of the eleven instructional units cover the following topics: self-discovery, general occupational clusters, agricultural occupational clusters, careers in agricultural production, careers in agricultural sales and services, careers in agricultural mechanics, careers in agricultural products, careers in horticulture, careers in forestry, and decision making. Each of these units follows a similar format which includes these elements: terminal and specific objectives; suggested activities for instructors and students; instructional and reference materials; information sheets; assignment sheets; and post tests with answer keys. The last unit contains a simulation game ("Payday") which is designed to accompany the decision-making unit. The instructions and materials needed to play the game are included. (BM)
