Description: The purpose of this course is to accent agriculture education and the Future Farmers of America (FFA) Association in developing young people to be premier leaders with a vision. Critical thinking and evaluation skills will be an important aspect of the curriculum. Just as important will be the incorporation of articulation skills, both written and verbal. Students will develop and enhance their leadership skills through self-enhancement, goal setting, cooperative learning, speech proficiency, parliamentary procedures, book reviews, and presentations. To maximize critical thinking skills, current events in agriculture will be brought in by the students and used in a decision-making forum. This process will include both and written and oral skills. Note: Fall Ag Leadership A is open to all students. Ag Leadership B is aimed at state CDE (Career Development Event) team preparation and requires teacher approval prior to enrollment.
