Intro to Agriculture

Introduction to Agriculture is an introductory course that covers a wide array of topics within the agricultural industry, exposing students to the many and varied types of agriculture and livestock career opportunities and to those in related fields (such as natural resources).  This course serves to introduce students to the agricultural field, providing them an opportunity to identify an area for continued study in agriculture.  The course will also highlight developing communication skills, business principles, and leadership skills.  This course is the prerequisite to other courses in the agriculture pathway.

Classroom instruction will be reinforced by performance based hands-on labs/activities whenever possible. Membership into the National FFA Organization is designed into this course and participation is strongly encouraged as FFA is an intra-curricular part of instruction and many class assignments and projects will coincide with FFA activities.  All students enrolled in the course will be introduced to the Supervised Agricultural Experience program (SAE).
