Revising and Updating the Animal Science Components of the Connecticut Vocational Agriculture Curriculum.
Mannebach, Alfred J.; And Others
This guide is intended for use in teaching Connecticut's revised animal science curriculum at regional vocational agriculture centers. Like its predecessor, this curriculum includes exploratory (intended for grades 9 and 10) and specialized (intended for grades 11 and 12) animal science units and is based on the following major areas of agriculture: animal science, plant science, agricultural mechanics, and natural resources. In this revised version of the curriculum, each unit has integrated in it a section on related potential employment or entrepreneurship job titles and relevant competencies needed for employment or self-employment success. The exploratory units deal with the field of animal science, animal selection, and basic animal care. The specialized animal science units cover the following topics: animal reproduction and genetics; animal health; animal nutrition; production of dairy cattle, poultry, beef, sheep, swine, horses, goats, rabbits, forage, and specialty animals; dairy production; meat products; care of laboratory animals; veterinary services; pet care and services; and riding and horsemanship. Each unit contains some or all of the following: unit title, unit length, grade(s) taught, objectives, related job titles and relevant competencies, a content outline, teacher activities, student activities, evaluation, resources, a bibliography, and sources of pertinent educational media.
