The Importance of Agriculture Science Course Sequencing in High Schools: A View from Collegiate Agriculture Students
Wheelus, Robin P.
Online Submission, M.S. Dissertation, Texas A&M University
The objective of this study was to investigate the importance of Agriculture Science course sequencing in high schools, as a preparatory factor for students enrolled in collegiate agriculture classes. With the variety of courses listed in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Agriculture Science, it has been possible for counselors, Agriculture Science Teachers, principals, or Career and Technology Education (CATE) directors to structure Agriculture Sciences courses offered based on personal preference, budgets or popularity among the students. In this study, students enrolled in agriculture courses at nine institutions across Texas were surveyed for their outlook on the importance of agriculture course sequencing in high school and if it had an effect on their preparation for agriculture curriculum in college. (Contains 6 tables and 9 figures.)
