Model Learner Outcomes for Agriculture/Agribusiness Education.
Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul.
Chapter 1 of this document contains sets of statements adopted by the Minnesota State Board of Education or Minnesota State Legislature. They represent the hierarchy used by Department of Education staff to develop model learner outcomes for each subject area. Contents include learner values, education system values, philosophy of education, mission statements, and learner goals. Chapter 2 discusses goals of agriculture/agribusiness education. Chapter 3 lists learner outcomes that a student should be able to demonstrate as a result of participating in a grade 9-12 agricultural program. It provides outcomes common to all programs and suggests that they be the core learner outcomes for all program areas in agriculture. Outcomes are presented for the following areas: mechanics occupations; products processing and marketing occupations; supplies and service occupations; forest management occupations; horticulture occupations; natural resource management occupations; and production agriculture. Each area identifies knowledge and process outcomes. Each learner outcome is keyed to the learner goals in chapter 1 and is referenced to the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective development domains. Outcomes that focus on multicultural, gender fair, and international/global concept development are coded to indicate this emphasis. Chapter 4 explains how to transpose these learner outcomes into a local district curriculum. Curriculum development forms with instructions and eight references are provided. (YLB)
