"Meeker School District - Accredited with Distinction" Meeker School District has been Accredited with Distinction again in 2017! ClickáHERE for updated information on Accredited with Distinction
Introduction to Agriculture Science
Instructor: Mrs. Smith   

Class policies: Be prompt!  If you get to class and the door is locked, you will need to go around to the office and get an admit slip.  You will not be admitted without an admit slip once class has begun and the classroom door is locked.

 Course Description:  This course is designed to be the prerequisite to many additional agriculture education courses. It teaches basic principles in subjects and leadership roles such as, but not limited to; public speaking, parliamentary procedure, computerized record-keeping, careers, agriculture science, agriculture business, and agriculture mechanics. Students will have an opportunity to explore the many components that compose agriculture. Throughout the year, student will complete several projects, which will develop knowledge and skill.

 Course Goals:

 

1.       Investigate key components of agricultural science and technology

 

2.       Provide YOU a solid foundation in leadership, science, mathematics, and communication skills through course instruction that incorporates individual and small group work activities.

 

3.       Provide students an opportunity to participate in leadership activities and competitions, including District Leadership Conferences, Creed Speaking, Quiz Bowl & Career Development Event Competitions, and State Leadership Conference.

Each student is expected to:

1.       Remain on task throughout each class period.

2.       Make and keep a notebook which includes all classroom work

3.        Keep an up-to-date AET, including weekly journal entries

4.       Be graded for wearing safety glasses while in the shop, they will be supplied while in this class (or you can bring your own). You will be responsible for returning the glasses at the end of the year. Glasses that are not returned will result in a $5.00 fee.

5.       Bring a pen and a pencil to class everyday.

6.       Remain in the designated working areas throughout the class period. Example: shop or classroom.

7.       If in the shop:

a.       Learn and use safety rules

b.       Bring coveralls (oil free)

c.       Wear your safety glasses (at all times)

*If one of these is not in compliance, students will not be allowed to participate in shop, and will receive an incomplete grade for the day(s) not prepared.


Note – 10% of the overall grade involves SAE.  Each student will be required to have a valid SAE throughout the year. Grading is established based on completion of a record book turned in once each semester, evaluated based upon completion.

 

Note – 10% of the overall grade involves FFA Participation.  FFA is a critical curriculum element in ALL Agriculture Education courses and is taught within the classroom.  In order to identify each student’s learning related to leadership education, activities are planned outside seat-time.  These activities are graded; students will be evaluated on worth ethic, promptness, courteousness, communication skills, team working skills etc. 

 

Just as rewards will be given for greatness in your future career, extra credit will always be given on superior work ethic. If you go above and beyond on FFA activities or work, there will always be an incentive for putting in extra effort.

Assignments, Quizzes, and Tests:        

1.       If an assignment is given, there will always be a definite due date. For every day that it is late, the respective grade will be 10% less.

 

2.       Students will always be given the chance to make up assignments or quizzes that resulted in an undesirable grade, but to be done so on the students own time, not during class.

 

3.       Exam Material will be taken directly from your in-class work. 

a.       You can use/access anything that’s been handed out in class, which has been placed in your notebook as a reference during an open-book exam;  Not all exams will be open book
