Agricultural Occupations. A Competency Based Articulated Curriculum.
Wells, Keith; And Others
This document is a competency-based curriculum guide designed to promote articulation in agricultural education programs between and among secondary and postsecondary institutions in the Indian Hills Community College and Merged Area XV high schools in Iowa. The guide is organized in nine sections. The first six sections provide background information about the articulation project, the audiences served and competencies developed, testing procedures, and provisions for transfer of credits. Section VII, which makes up the greater part of the document, details the competencies in 12 areas needed by entry-level farm workers and the enabling tasks needed to become proficient in the competencies. Each competency consists of three parts that, when used in combination, provide a detailed outline of major tasks that a student must accomplish to reach one or more previously stated student outcomes. The three parts are the task that the student must accomplish, the conditions under which the student must demonstrate the skills, and standards of acceptable performance. The final two sections of the guide are a list of job titles available in the local area keyed to relevant competencies and a glossary of terms used in agricultural education. (KC)
