Berkey, Arthur; Sutphin, Dean
This document serves as a guide for establishing new supervised occupational experience (SOE) programs in agriculture and/or updating/improving existing SOE programs. It is designed for use by administrators, guidance counselors, agricultural teachers, advisory committee members, and others who have an interest in or responsibility for the school curriculum. Section I lists the major steps (activities) for establishing/improving existing programs. Individuals and/or groups needed to carry out the activities are suggested. Section II provides guidelines for conducting high quality SOE in agriculture and suggested strategies for implementing these guidelines. The 11 areas for which guidelines and strategies are provided include definition, purposes, types of SOE, clientele, administrative support and policies, supervision/coordination/placement, relationship to in-class instruction and Future Farmers of America, legal requirements, evaluation, and options for using SOE as part of an agricultural sequence in New York State. Some adaptation is anticipated to meet individual school situations. Section III contains supplemental materials, including a teacher calendar of key SOE activities and a glossary of terms. (YLB)
