Environmental and Natural Resources Occupations in Agricultural Education. A Teacher's Guide. Preliminary Draft.
Mercer, R. J., Ed.
The guide was developed for teachers of a one-year high school course in environmental and natural resources occupations and was part of larger project to revise the total agricultural education curriculum in South Carolina. A curriculum paradigm is presented with units and subunits diagramed and time periods suggested for each. Basic supportive units are orientation, ecology, weather, land use, and population and our environment. The four functional units (each with two to six subunits) are: conserving and utilizing the essentials of our environment, maintaining or improving environmental health, maintaining or improving the beauty of our environment, and maintaining or improving outdoor recreation. Career exploration subunits are presented for each of the functional units. Each subunit includes behaviorally stated objectives, suggested learning activities, a content outline of topics, and suggested resources. Appendixes include a table of manpower needs in the field, a list of facilities and equipment needed, and a selected list of related professional and technical societies and organizations. A bibliography of bulletins, films, transparencies, and almost 50 books is provided. (SC)
