Teaching the Disadvantaged: A Curriculum Guide for Classes of Disadvantaged Students in Agricultural Education Programs.
Crunkilton, John R.
The guide begins with some observations on teaching disadvantaged students, a list of successful types of learning activities, and recommendations for planning and conducting an effective classroom situation. Also included are 13 general objectives of a program for the disadvantaged. The guide, intended as a source of ideas and directions in selecting instructional units, is organized according to enterprises (topics) which are divided into problem areas (subtopics) followed by an application section which suggests some specific activities for students. Instructional topics include: masonry, electricity, plumbing, woodworking, metal work, welding, painting, agricultural equipment maintenance/repair, farm structures, animal care, crops, soil and water management, forestry, conservation, recreational occupations, horticulture, and agribusiness. Some of the instructional areas are designed to be taught flexibly, using those problem areas which will meet student needs. Other areas include a unit division for which all the problem areas should be taught. Final sections deal briefly with occupations for the disadvantaged and with relating occupations to the curriculum guide. (MS)
