Articulated Curriculum for Agricultural Occupations. 2 + 2. Second Year Final Report.
Daingerfield-Lone Star Independent School District, Daingerfield, TX.
The Agriculture 2+2 Curriculum Development Project was an articulated training program linking the last 2 years of secondary and the first 2 years of postsecondary training designed to prepare students for employment in 3 or more agricultural technology occupations. The curriculum provided for the development of saleable skills after grade 12 and advanced employment in technical agriculture at the associate degree level. Administrators developed and implemented a competency-based program using input from secondary schools, postsecondary institutions, business, industry, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and the Texas Education Association. Three procedures were executed in the second project year: instructional materials were identified; a basic certificate program with course outlines was developed; and a "how-to" manual was developed. (The bulk of this document contains reference materials and information on basic certificate programs for four occupational areas: dairy products, garden center management, poultry products, and retail florist. Catalog numbers and titles of all reference materials are included. For each program listed, course objectives and course outlines are included.) (NLA)
