Caring for an Established Lawn. An Instructional Unit for Teachers of Adult Vocational Education in Agriculture.
Butler, Martha A.; Dickens, John W.
This unit was developed as a guide for use by Kentucky teachers in planning and conducting adult classes in lawn care. Although primarily intended for use by horticulture instructors, the material could be used with young farmers and/or adult farmers and their spouses. The unit contains four lessons covering the following topics: conducting cultural practices for an established lawn; fertilizing and liming an established lawn; correcting common established lawn problems; and renovating an established lawn. The lesson format was designed to assist teachers in using problem-solving techniques and the discussion method. Each lesson contains an objective, problem and analysis, outline of content, and suggestions for teaching the lesson, including enrichment activities, suggested materials, and suggested resource persons. Transparency and hand-out masters are contained in each lesson, and a list of references to be used with the unit is included in the package. (KC)
