The guide is designed for use by agricultural instructors, administrators, supervisors, school boards, and others who are involved in planning instructional programs for vocational agriculture/agribusiness education in high schools and adult education. Part 1 details information pertaining to the administrative aspects of program development, management, and evaluation. It discusses content areas, supporting areas of instruction, adult education, multi-district programs, and total career education in agriculture, that will prepare individuals for job entry and upgrade their occupational training. The process of evaluating such a program is outlined in detail.

For each it gives a list of examples of performance objectives, occupational titles, and content outline. It also gives lengthy lists of bibliographic sources, references, and instructional aids. Suggested lists of facility and equipment specifications and a sample four year program in vocational agriculture are appended in detail. (Author/EC)
