Procedures for Recruiting, Selecting, and Preparing Persons with Non-Teaching Professional Degrees to Be Teachers of Vocational Agriculture/Agribusiness. Programs for Training Vocational Teachers in Selected Areas of Teacher Shortage. Part II of a Final Report.
Lee, Jasper S.; And Others
Based on the findings of a national survey of agricultural education state supervisors, teacher educators, and a sample of vocational agriculture teachers, this document presents procedures used in the recruitment, selection, and preparation of non-teaching degree professionals for teaching positions in vocational agriculture/agribusiness. (ERIC document CE 019 062 also contains these procedures in addition to a detailed report of the survey methodology, analysis, and results.) Chapter 1, Recruitment, discusses the teacher shortage, those responsible for recruitment (local administrators, supervisors, teachers, etc.), sources of teachers, and recruitment strategies. Chapter 2, Selection, considers such teaching qualifications as educational preparation, occupational experience, and professional potential. In chapter 3, Preparation, the following considerations are examined: nature and requirements of the teaching position in vocational agriculture/agribusiness; state teacher certification requirements (degree, college courses, and occupational experience); documenting experiences of applicants; evaluation of experiences in terms of state certification requirements; identifying deficiencies of the applicant and setting priorities for correcting deficiencies; developing a state delivery system to meet the needs of non-certified teachers; possible staff responsibilities of various individuals in preparing persons with non-teaching professional degrees; and evaluation of a personal preparation plan model. A bibliography is included. (CT)
