This course covers a wide variety of information about agriculture and related fields. The intent is to enable the instructor to customize instruction to meet the needs of the student enrolled in the agricultural education program. Content areas include agribusiness operations, animal science and care, ecology and natural resource management, plant science and landscaping, and woodworking and basic mechanics. Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.
Note: For teachers creating individualized education programs (IEPs) for their students, it is recommended that instruction focus on one or more areas in the 8053 list to create comprehensive and challenging IEPs reflective of each student's ability.
The career pathway will be determined by other courses taken in conjunction with this course to build a concentration sequence.
Competencies within this course ensure compliance with the National FFA Organization's Federal Charter Amendments Act (Public Law 116-7). Through this legislation, students are provided opportunities for leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
