Introduction to Agricultural Business Unit for Animal Science Core Curriculum. Instructor's Guide. Volume 16, Number 2.
Stewart, Bob R.; And Others
Developed as an addition to the animal and plant science curricula available in vocational agriculture, this unit consists of seven lessons. It is intended to be taught as a part of the first year of instruction for students of vocational agriculture. Teachers should use community resources to localize the unit. All lessons are organized in a format to aid teachers in planning their lessons. Introductory material for the teacher lists objectives and competencies to be developed, recommends motivational techniques and interest approaches, lists references and materials, and suggests evaluation methods. A competency profile for student evaluation is then provided. The lessons cover an introduction to agribusiness, the role of agribusiness in the community, the role of the employee in an agribusiness, success and failure on the job, agribusiness procedures, and setting personal goals. Each lesson may contain some or all of these components: lesson objective; study questions; a list of required materials; teaching procedures, including lesson content and answers to evaluation; evaluation (test); handouts; transparency masters; and assignment sheets.
