These forty-two learning activity packages, intended for student use, are based on a catalog of performance objectives, criterion-referenced measures, and performance guides for gardening-groundskeeping developed by the Vocational Education Consortium of States (V-TECS). They are organized by four areas of instruction: Organizing and Planning (personnel consideration, planting and fertilization schedules); Directing and Implementing (safety and inspection activities, replacement ordering); Inspecting and Evaluating (soil sampling, storage procedures, equipment capability evaluation); and Maintaining Plants (general plant care, including planting, pruning, watering and insect protection. Each package has the same format: Introduction; Directions to the Student, Objective(s); Learning Activities; Safety; Equipment, Tools, and Supplies Needed; Instructions; Student Self-check; Final Check-out Activity; and Instructors Final Checklist. It is noted that references listed or appropriate substitutes are essential, since the learning packages as presented do not include complete content. (Volume II contains packages 43-84--see Note.)
