Horticulture Mechanics Course Outline. Teacher Education Series, Vol. 15, No. 1t.
Grant, Lee P.; And Others
The document provides 17 outlines of brief instructional units in mechanics, which are intended for incorporation into an existing program of study in ornamental horticulture at the secondary or postsecondary level. To facilitate the flexible use of the outlines, a grid is presented on which seven occupational areas (such as aboriculture, turfgrass maintenance, and greenhouse production) are matched with the appropriate mechanics unit (such as plumbing, hydraulics, tree tools, and irrigation systems). The units involve safety, simple mechanical skills, and the operation and maintenance, but not repair, of equipment, and cover both fall and spring semester work. The statements within units may be expanded into performance (behavior) objectives, which may then be broken down into task or skill units. (Author/AJ)
