Exploring Agribusiness and Natural Resources. Competency Based Education Curriculum. Teacher's Guide.
Lawrence, Layle D.
This teacher's guide accompanies a competency-based, prevocational exploration curriculum in agribusiness and natural resources (CE 022 472). The teaching plan was designed to acquaint students with career opportunities in these fields and to expose them to a sample of skills required for success in the various related occupations. Approximately forty-five class periods are required to complete the exploration units, which were developed for use at eighth- and ninth-grade levels. Essential references, teaching aids, materials, and equipment are listed in this manual. Competency sheets are included for the following eight units covered by the curriculum: agricultural business; animal science; horticulture; agricultural products processing; plant science; soil science; agricultural mechanics; and natural resources. In addition, student competency sheets are included for an introductory unit and a unit on developing career plans. Each student competency sheet includes exploration area; occupational task; task competencies; student performance objective; suggested resources and procedures; and evaluation procedures. An overall evaluation checklist of the exploration experiences is found at the end of the instructional units, along with a list of fun activities and some sources for career information. (BM)
