 Situation: The local feed store has posted a job opening as a sales clerk. You have convinced your

 this job is “tailor-made” for you since you have just completed an Agri-Sales class at your high school.

 convince him/her of your employability skills. Be sure to include traits/skills you possess that are
 specific to this agricultural career.

Note: The on-demand prompt above was developed and submitted by a Kentucky teacher during a
summer 2009 workshop. The prompt was designed to connect to a Kentucky standard or standards to
support learning in the classroom. The prompt should be used in the context of a standards-based unit
to support the teaching and learning of the standard(s).
