Agricultural Education Career Development Event John Deere Ag Expo 2016
PURPOSE The purpose of the Agricultural Education Career Development Event is to provide individuals with basic skills necessary for a career as an agricultural educator. Teaching agriculture involves teaching students about applications of science, management, leadership, and technology in the food, fiber, natural resource industry. Teaching methods emphasize hands on approaches where application of skills and knowledge is central to lesson presentations. Agricultural Education strives to make learning enjoyable, meaningful and lasting. Agriculture Education incorporates classroom and laboratory instruction, supervised agricultural experiences (SAE), and the FFA to allow for the personal development of students both inside and outside the classroom to better prepare them for success in life. ELIGIBILITY The participant must be an active member of a chartered Montana FFA Chapter and enrolled in grades 9, 10, 11, or 12. Each chapter may enter up to three individuals. EVENT PROCEDURES 1. Individuals should bring two #2 pencils to contest. 2. Each contestant must bring their own instructional tools and materials (i.e. flip charts, hand outs, visual aids.) Only a lap top and projector will be provided in the presentation room. 3. FFA members must be in official dress, appropriate to the contest, and will be scored accordingly. 4. Each year a new agricultural content area will be chosen from a rotating list and selected in this order: agriculture leadership, agribusiness, technical agriculture operations, animal science, natural resources, plant science, and biotechnology. 5. Each participant’s lesson plan will be the result of his or her own efforts. 6. All lesson plans submitted must follow the template provided. 7. Points will be deducted for going under or over time provided during the lesson plan presentation. 8. All submitted lesson plans will be posted in a database that will be widely accessible by teachers. EVENT PRACTICUMS WRITTEN EXAM The test will consist of 25 multiple choice questions to be answered on a scantron sheet. There will be three questions from each AFNR career pathway and one question regarding national legislation relevant to agricultural education. LESSON PLAN The lesson plan must focus on one or more standards from AFNR career cluster content standards. The allotted time, number of students in class, content focus, and facilities available will be given to participants to design their lessons. Facts and working data may be secured from any source but must be appropriately documented. Lesson plans are due to the CDE coordinator 10 days before the contest. Failure to meet this deadline will result in disqualification.
