A Study of Job Demands and Curriculum Development in Agricultural Training Related to the Muskegon County Wastewater Management System. Final Report. Volume III. Student Terminal Performance Objectives and Instructional Modules.
Fisher, Harold S.; And Others
This is the third volume of a four-volume report of a research project designed to (1) identify job needs for agricultural occupations which will result from the Muskegon County Wastewater Management System and perform a task analysis on each occupation, (2) develop instructional modules and determine their place in either high school or 2-year college programs, and (3) implement an articulated curriculum with actual programs. This volume focuses on the second objective--student performance objectives and instructional modules. Performance objectives are presented for each of the eight occupations identified in relation to wastewater management systems: Wastewater treatment operator, wastewater treatment laboratory technician, agricultural equipment mechanic, farm equipment operator, farm manager, field supervisor, irrigator, and grain drier operator. The performance objectives are presented in a four-column format which also includes a corresponding instructional module topic, learning conditions, and criteria. Sets of instructional modules, or examples of modules, for the eight occupations constitute over half the document. Each module contains a module concept, prerequisites, module goal, corresponding student performance objective, instructional areas, and examples of supporting references, student learning activities, and evaluation techniques. The four appendixes contain information related to the development of the objectives and modules. (SH)
