Agricultural Machinery Service. A Curriculum Guide for Agricultural Education.
Henrico County Public Schools, Glen Allen, VA. Virginia Vocational Curriculum Center.
This curriculum guide provides descriptions and sequenced topical outlines for courses in agricultural mechanics, especially in Virginia. It provides teachers with a logical order for teaching the tasks that students should master to comply with competency-based education requirements. It is also intended to help administrators and supervisors in organizing agricultural education programs and to provide information on the program for guidance counselors. Following an introduction that provides an overview of the agricultural mechanics program by identifying its purposes and objectives, course options, and course requirements, the Guide Application section divides agricultural mechanics into courses. This section also contains a list of representative "Dictionary of Occupational Titles" (DOT) job titles that apply to this domain and are the basis for the tasks/competencies identified in this guide. The final section contains the program title and description, the courses included in the program, the applicable DOT job titles, and a description and topical outline for each course. Appendix A provides suggested tools and equipment lists for the courses under the agricultural mechanics domain. Appendix B contains reference materials suggested for the agricultural machinery service courses. (KC)
