Agribusiness Management. Competency Based Education Curriculum. Teacher's Guide.
This publication is the Teacher's Guide for the competency based curriculum in agribusiness management for high school students in West Virginia. The purpose of the competency based education curriculum is to provide a set of West Virginia-validated agribusiness tasks, along with the steps needed to perform each task, the evaluation standards, and suggested learning activities. The first six sections of the guide provide background information and suggestions for use of the curriculum. Topics include an introduction, identification and validation of job titles and competencies, functions of developmental committee, program organizations, bibliography of resources, and an equipment list. Section 7, the main body of the guide, deals with implementation of the curriculum. For each of the 12 modules, encompassing 54 competencies, the guide provides a competency sheet summarizing equipment needed, instructor's responsibilities, and a summary and/or answers to the criterion evaluation included with each competency. The 12 modules encompassing the agribusiness management curriculum include the following: occupational knowledge, selling principles, sale closing, mathematics, related mathematics, advertising, special sales, stock, accounting and bookkeeping, pricing, inventory, and shipping and receiving. A student grade card for the agribusiness management curriculum completes the publication. (KC)
