Monthly Planning Manual for Beginning Vocational Agriculture Teachers. Final Report.
Miller, Stephen S.; Yoder, Edgar P.
The purpose of this publication is to aid the beginning teacher of vocational agriculture/agribusiness in planning for the first year as a member of the teaching profession. The manual is organized on a monthly schedule starting with July, since this is often the month when a new vocational agriculture teacher is hired. Each month includes seven key areas of teacher responsibility: instructional program, administrative details, supervised occupational experience, Future Farmers of America (FFA), vocational agriculture teachers' professional organizations, adult program, and professional development. Each key area of teacher responsibility has a list of tasks or suggested procedures to be accomplished each month. There is space for the teacher to check when each task or procedure is completed. General information for beginning teachers is provided in an introductory section called "The First 100 Days." Appendixes to the guide consist of suggested activities for adult farmer programs and FFA chapter programs, as well as sample forms used in a vocational agriculture department. (KC)
