    What are Practicum Skills?

Practicum Skills Enterprises allow students to
gain knowledge through:

   *Non-experimental research
   *Exploring various areas of agriculture
   *Exploring agricultural careers.
   School related practicum skills example:
• Keep records of what you do each day in your
  agriculture class, ag mechanics shop, greenhouse,
  floral shop, land lab, etc.
• Work in the school greenhouse or land lab
• Serve as a school lab assistant.
• Develop and or maintain the FFA chapter
  website.
• Develop and/or participate in a recycling or litter
  pick up program
• Plant a butterfly garden at an elementary school
Creative Practicum Skills Examples:

• Develop a marketing plan for an agricultural
  commodity
• Write a series of newspaper articles about the
  environment
• Design a land use plan for your school district
• Develop a landscape design for a community
  facility
• Design an advertising campaign for an
  agribusiness
• Attend a county or state conservation camp
    More practicum skills examples:
•   Observe and/or assist a florist
•   Grow plants in a milk jug "greenhouse"
•   Assist on a horse farm for a day
•   Interview an agricultural loan officer in a bank
•   Prepare a scrapbook on the work of a veterinarian

                                            Agricultural Laboratory and Facilities
Give a brief description of the laboratory(s) and facilities in which practicum skills will be gained in terms
of size, equipment available, number of students using the laboratory and type of work performed.

   The agriculture shop consists of an area approximately 1500 square feet. It includes
   10 electric arc stick welders, 3 MIG welders and a TIG welder as well as a plasma
   cutter, a four station oxy-acetylene welding station as well as various metal working
   and bending jigs. There is also a weld testing station and two drill presses.
   Woodworking equipment includes a table saw, band saw, radial arm saw, belt and
   disk sander, planer, miter box saw, wood lathe and various hand and small power
   tools. We have stations for electricity and wiring, concrete and masonry, small gas
   engines and hydraulics. There is a safety cabinet, fire extinguishers and a cabinet to
   sterilize safety glasses. There is a fume exhaust system for the welders and small
   engines and a dust collecting system for the woodworking equipment.
             Finally, sign the agreement yourself and secure the signature of your
             parent. Signatures should be in blue or black ink.

                                   This record book is designed as a tool for student and
                                   teacher to evaluate the work done on the project. They
                                   may or may not agree on the rating recorded.

                 This evaluation may be done at the end of the year
                 or when recording summary information.




Enter on a daily basis, each task performed and the number of hours involved. When all tasks are performed within a
job, the hours should be totaled and entered on the Job Summary Sheet, page 7&8. The student and the teacher will
each evaluate the job. This will be done by using a 4-0 scale.
Example:    4 - completed task without supervision; can supervise others in performing tasks
            3 - completed task without supervision; however needs additional practice
                to improve efficiency,
            2- completed tasks with minimum supervision; needs additional practice,
            1 - completed task with much supervisory help,
            0 - did not complete task

Use this scale to evaluate all tasks entered on pages 3-6. A student may repeat a job in order to
become more proficient in achieving his occupational objective.
                                          Enterprise name, student name and enterprise number must be entered
                                          the same as on the common pages cover page.



                                                           Be consistent with time units. Use the same minute or hour

        Keystone Degree Notes
• Data from your practicum skills enterprises is
  entered on page 6 of your Keystone degree
