Designed for use in a self-paced, open-entry/open-exit vocational training program for a floriculture aide, this program guide is one of six for teachers of adult women offenders from a correctional institution. Module topic outlines and sample lesson plans are presented on eleven topics: occupational opportunities in the retail florist industry; personal qualifications for success, the art of selling flowers, paperwork, display, floral supplies and equipment, storing and handling cut flowers and greenery, potted plants and their care, soil and other plant-growing media, growing plants, and propagating plants. For each topical area the concept, performance objectives, generalizations, occupational competencies, suggested learning activities, and criterion-referenced measures are listed. A job description and career ladder are included. A training plan outline suggests approximate time periods for each topic within a twenty-five-week program. (The final report of the project to develop and field test the six guides is CE 017 808). (Author/JH)
