Natural Resources and Forest Ecology. Florida Vocational Program Guide.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee. Center for Instructional Development and Services.
This program guide identifies primary considerations in the organization, operation, and evaluation of a natural resources and forest ecology program. Program content is presented first. A curriculum framework specifies the exact course title, course number, levels of instruction, major course content, laboratory activities, special notes, major course concepts, and intended outcomes. Student performance standards are a resource list of job-specific competencies. The next section includes facility design criteria, suggested equipment and supplies, and information on safety. The section on implementation considers use of agriculture enhancement teaching-learning plans and the student learning guide and student organization participation. A section on professional considerations lists certification coverage for natural resources and forest ecology and professional organizations and support services. The final section lists the following instructional resources: a contact for information on a test item bank; teacher-recommended materials; sources of print and audiovisual materials and software; and Florida Educational Information Service services. Sample teaching-learning plans and a sample student learning guide are appended. A Career Merit Achievement Plan (Career MAP) displays the student performance standards required by the local education agency and documents students' level of achievement. (YLB)
