Agriculture Cluster Brief. Vocational Education in Oregon.
This guide sets forth minimum approval criteria for vocational agriculture cluster programs in Oregon. The agriculture cluster program includes instruction in six areas: animal science, soil science, plant science, agricultural economics, agriculture mechanics, and leadership development. The information in the guide is intended for use by district-level curriculum planners, teachers, regional coordinators or state education department staff involved with new program development or revisions of existing programs. The guide outlines the instructional content in terms of program descriptions, areas for training, program goals, course/content goals, and sample performance objectives. Course titles and descriptions are also included. A section on organizational options is designed to illustrate a few of the many ways to deliver the minimum instructional content required for an approved vocational cluster program. Content is illustrated by course titles for the instructional levels to recognize that students from different grades may enroll in one or more levels of a program. (KC)
