Course Description
The world population is expected to increase to 9 billion by 2050. The agricultural industry will need strong leadership to guide us to provide food, fiber and fuel for this growing population. Agricultural education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the global agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems. Agriculture Leadership and Communications will provide students with fundamental skills for success in agricultural careers and team environments. Students will investigate a variety of topics essential to communicating about the industry of agriculture. In addition to improving personal traits and career readiness, areas of study include interviewing, writing with or without using opinion, researching techniques, equipment and technology, and presentation of news and agricultural markets. Opportunities for application of clinical and leadership skills are provided by participation in FFA activities, conferences and skills competition such as sales related career development events and proficiency awards. Each student will be expected to maintain a Supervised Agricultural Experience Program/Internship. English, Speech, and Human Relations skills will be reinforced in the course. Work-based learning strategies appropriate for this course are school-based enterprises, field trips, and internship.
