Jones, Luke; Myrick, Dwight
Research and Curriculum Unit
As the world economy continues to evolve, businesses and industries must adopt new practices and processes in order to survive. Quality and cost control, work teams and participatory management, and an infusion of technology are transforming the way people work and do business. Employees are now expected to read, write, and communicate effectively; think creatively, solve problems, and make decisions; and interact with each other and the technologies in the workplace. Career-technical programs must also adopt these practices in order to provide graduates who can enter and advance in the changing work world. The curriculum framework in this document reflects these changes in the workplace and a number of other factors that impact local career-technical programs. Conservation Law Enforcement Technology is a two-year program of study that prepares the graduate for entry-level employment as a Conservation Law Enforcement Officer (game warden) in the state of Mississippi. The program blends technical courses in forestry and academic courses in criminal justice with other academic courses, including the core. The Associate of Applied Science degree is earned upon successful completion of the program. After successfully completing the program, the student will be awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree from the community/junior college. Industry standards are based on the National Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (AFNR) Career Cluster Content Standards. Appended are: (1) Standards and Guidelines for Veterinary Education and Activities; (2) Related Academic Standards; and (3) 21st Century Skills. A list of suggested references is provided for each unit. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
