Kansas Vocational Education in Agriculture Supervised Occupational Experience.
Parmley, John D.
Intended for secondary and postsecondary teachers of agriculture, this handbook presents guidelines for developing and supervising occupational experience programs. The first section is a general discussion of vocational education in agriculture. The next section considers identification of student occupational goals and development of an appropriate supervised occupational experience program. Sample forms and examples of a program plan for supervised farming are provided in section III. Section IV contains material on cooperative occupational experience in agribusiness, including information on program planning, training station selection, legal provisions for student workers, individual training plan development, training agreement development, and program supervision and coordination. These forms are included: a training station selection checklist, a training plan, and a training agreement. Suggestions for farm placement, laboratory experience programs, and programs for students with limited opportunities are offered in the last two sections. Appendixes, amounting to approximately two-thirds of the handbook, include the Vocational Agriculture Student Interest Survey, a sample school farm contract, sample lesson plans for teaching supervised occupational experiences (student objectives, a list of teaching aids, content summary and suggested teaching techniques, review and application), and 24 transparency masters.
