Household Pets: Care, Feeding and Occupational Opportunities.
Burhoe, Steven A.
The publication is designed for teachers of agriculture as a guide in developing teaching plans for a unit on the care and feeding of household pets and on occupations in this area. A local situation appropriate to the unit, teacher objectives, an introduction, and group objectives are briefly developed for the unit. For the topics of feeding and caring for dogs, feeding and caring for cats, sources of information on other household pets, and identifying occupational opportunities in pet care, the guide includes sections on problems and concerns of students, a list of references for teacher and student use, suggested visual aids and other equipment, ideas for special events and activities, and a few possible activities for application and evaluation. A detailed content summary for each section, intended for teacher use, condenses material from the references and relates to the problems and concerns presented. A section on identifying sources of information on other household pets lists specific references, including source and content, for each item. The subject of understanding pet care is briefly described. (MS)
