This task analysis guide is intended to help teachers and administrators develop instructional materials and implement competency-based education for natural resources management courses in the agricultural resources program. Section 1 contains a validated task inventory for natural resources management. For each task, applicable information pertaining to performance and enabling objectives, criterion-referenced measures, and suggested instructional activities and aids is provided. In this section, tasks are arranged by worker content/concept areas only, and no attempt is made to sequence tasks in instructional order. Section 2 provides a description of the natural resources management programs and courses that incorporate natural resources management. These materials follow: a description of the courses, a task sequence list that provides a suggested order of the task inventory for the actual course instruction, and a course content outline. The instructional topics within the course content outline have been cross-referenced with corresponding task/competency codes from the task inventory in Section 1. Appendixes include listings of books and selected teaching materials, audiovisual materials, publishers' addresses, and additional equipment and tools. (YLB)
