Agriculture Cooperative Training Group Instruction Handbook. Revised.
Texas A and M Univ., College Station. Vocational Instructional Services.
This handbook was developed to assist teachers of secondary agricultural cooperative training with related instructional periods and to assist students in developing the civic and social aspects of their lives. The contents of the handbook are intended as a guide for teachers in leading group discussions with their class members, selecting appropriate discussion topics, choosing a suitable method of presenting the information, and increasing interest and active participation of class members. The first 16 pages in the handbook contain instructions on conducting group discussions and the presentation of information to students. Following this introduction, the handbook contains 85 topics of information that should be of value to students regardless of the occupation for which they are training. Each topic has a similar format that includes topic name, objective, references, student activities, teacher activities, questions and answers, and information sheets. Brief answers appear under each question in the handbook, and additional information is provided for each question in the information sheet. Some of the topics covered include the following: finding a job, preparing for interviews, holding a job, employee-employer relations, social skills, personal appearance, sources of credit and interest rates, Social Security, income tax returns, awards, Future Farmers of America, business records, merchandise planning, and safety on the job.
