Introduction to Horticulture. Unit A-10.
Luft, Vernon D.; Backlund, Paul
Intended to provide about 10 hours of instruction to first-year vocational agriculture students, this instructional unit introduces students to the horticulture industry, provides a broad background of horticultural practices, and covers many skills that can be directly applied by students in their projects. Topics of the individual sections of the unit are examining the field of horticulture; establishing and maintaining lawns; planting, pruning, and maintaining trees and shrubs; planting and growing a garden; and beautifying homes and farms. Included in each section are the objectives of the section, guide questions, references, an interest approach, key facts, and student learning activities. Transparency masters are included in each section. Among the activities suggested are projects involving guest speakers, field trips, actual hands-on experiences, and participation in a student farmer's market cooperative. (Other units in this series are available separately--see note.) (MN)
