Vocational-Technical Education in Agricultural Resources. Final Report.
Stevens, Glenn Z.; Hoover, Norman K.
Suitable program establishment guides and teaching materials are needed to develop programs in agricultural resources that will qualify students to enter and advance in existing and emerging occupations in the areas of conservation, recreational utilization, and protection and regulation. The first phase of the project sought to determine the attitudes of five groups of 20 agricultural-related persons each toward 56 items of program establishment and 64 items of instructional units. The consensus of opinion among the groups found in 81 percent of the items justifies the use of agricultural resource persons in determining program and instructional content and the development of a guide for establishing programs. The second phase of the project focused on the preparation of a teacher's resource unit for an introductory course for high school students. The survey instruments and the availability of publications developed through the project are appended. (GB)
