Agricultural Production: Task Analysis for Livestock Production. Competency-Based Education.
Henrico County Public Schools, Glen Allen, VA. Virginia Vocational Curriculum Center.
This task analysis guide is intended to help teachers and administrators develop instructional materials and implement competency-based education in the agricultural production program. Section 1 contains a validated task inventory for the livestock production portion of agricultural production IV and V. Tasks are divided into six duty areas: performing general livestock duties and raising beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, horses, and sheep. For each task, applicable information pertaining to performance and enabling objectives, criterion-referenced measures, and suggested instructional activities and aids are provided. In this section, tasks are arranged by worker duty area only, and the suggested task sequence list from Section 2 (as adapted by the local system) should be used to establish teaching order of the tasks. Section 2 provides descriptions of the agricultural production program and second- and third-year courses and suggests a task sequence listing and an outline for livestock production. The instructional topics within the course content outlines have been cross-referenced with corresponding task/competency codes from the task inventory in Section 1. A bibliography is followed by a listing of additional information and resources. (YLB)
