Agricultural Occupations Program Planning Guide.
Hemp, Paul E.; Mayer, Leon
The major program objectives of agricultural occupations courses are (1) to develop agricultural competencies needed by individuals engaged in or preparing to engage in production agriculture, and in agricultural occupations other than production agriculture; (2) to develop an understanding of the career opportunities in agriculture; (3) to develop the ability to advance in agricultural occupations through continuing education; (4) to develop human relations abilities needed in agriculture; and (5) to develop the abilities needed to exercise and follow effective leadership. This planning guide has been designed as an aid to teachers and administrators who wish to plan or replan an agricultural occupations program at the secondary school level. A suggested procedure and sample forms are included to assist the teacher in developing courses of study using the Illinois Core Curriculum Project materials. The guide includes an introduction to agricultural occupations as a field of study, including the background legislation which precipitated it; suggested procedures for program development; program models; the Illinois Core Curriculum and its use in program development; program objectives; and course planning aids, including course planning forms and directions for their use.
