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 agricultural production. Tasks are divided into 10 duty areas: orienting the student to agricultural production, developing leadership skills, using mechanics in agriculture, using plant science in agricultural production, managing natural resources, maintaining the home lawn, managing family resources, operating the farm as an agricultural business, producing poultry, and managing an apiary. For each task, applicable information pertaining to performance and enabling objectives, criterion-referenced measures, and suggested instructional activities and aids are provided. Tasks are arranged by worker duty area only, and the suggested task sequence list from Section 2 should be used to establish teaching order of the tasks. Section 2 provides descriptions of the agricultural production courses and suggests task sequence listings and course outlines. 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)
