Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing. Vocational Education and Career Development Service.; Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Dept. of Secondary Education and Curriculum.
A program of vocational education for agribusiness and natural resources occupations should be part of the total program available to the youth and adults within a community, suggests the author. Therefore, consideration must be given to the most effective ways and means of providing such an instructional program. The planning process is considered essential and this report deals with elements of planning program perspectives based on first hand experiences of teachers and career education coordinators. A checklist of steps and key points for planning area programs using either the shared time or area vocational education center approaches, and for planning for cooperative efforts among local educational agencies for instructional activities is provided. Appendixes include guidelines for selecting the agricultural advisory committee for Van Buren County and an example of some procedures for planning the area program in Sanilac County. (KP)
