Curriculum Guide for Agriculture.
Oregon State Board of Education, Salem. Div. of Community Colleges and Career Education.
Developed through a cooperative effort by industry and education, this curriculum guide outlines the basic knowledge and skills necessary for entry-level competencies in the broad field of agriculture, or for entrance into a post-high school program. This guide is one of several developed for Oregon's new approach to secondary education called "The Oregon Way," based on the assumptions that secondary schools should be preparatory for all students, and that a preparatory program ties the curriculum to the lives of students. Following the occupational and instructional data and cluster curriculum suggestions, course outlines are provided for: (1) Animal Science, (2) Soil Science, (3) Plant Science, (4) Agriculture Mechanics, (5) Leadership Training and Personal Development, and (6) Agriculture Business Management, plus a supplementary unit on agricultural occupations. Required knowledge and skills, behavioral objectives, and suggested learning activities are given for each unit. Recommendations for facilities and equipment, and evaluation criteria and procedures are appended. (GEB)
