11.01 Identify attitudes and habits necessary to achieve career success.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
Students will be exploring careers in agriculture with a particular focus on Ag Ed. The target they will be focusing on will be the facilitation of a lesson of their design that they will be presenting to Kindergarten and 1st grade.
Tuesday: Do you consider yourself a leader? Why or why not?
Wednesday: Who do you see as a great leader in your life and why?
Friday: Do you think people are born leaders or learn to be leaders and why?
Tuesday: As a class, brainstorm on WHAT you would like to facilitate as a lesson into the K/1 classrooms. THEN determine who will be doing the facilitation (Who likes speaking in public? Who prefers the planning/organization part of the project?) You will ALL be facilitating the same lesson but perhaps in different ways. Today is all about working together. I need to know:
What standards will you be addressing for K/1?
Wednesday: Break into groups. Think about how you will organize your group! Who will do the facilitating (it can be everyone in the group if you decide on that)? Who will be responsible for writing the lesson plans? Who is going to be responsible for writing the letter to introduce your group to the teacher? You will also need a poster to grab the attention of the students – do you have an artist in your group? Come up with a plan today and start to put your plan into motion!
Friday: Garden (we need a little fresh air) and then inside to work with our group! Today you will work on constructing your lesson plans and letter.
By Friday, I will be expecting your lesson plans and letter.
