Part of Lesson Plan: Long term planning for SAE programs.
Activity Overview / Details
Distribute one blank SAE plan per student. Ask them first to record their name, date of graduation and ag teacher on the page. First, explain how this grid works. It is a multi-year grid that they will complete at the start of each school year to guide them through the upcoming year. Each column represents their year in agriculture and each row is a different characteristic of planning their SAE. They will need to pull out their SAE notes to help guide them along the way. Then, go step by step through the page and walk through each line. For example, the first line says, "Name of SAE". If a student is interested in working at the school greenhouse, they would write that under year 1. The next row is "Resources Needed" and it mirrors the business agreement component of the recordbook. They need to brainstorm who is responsible for different elements of their SAE and then record it there. Finish out the year 1 column in this format. Should take 20 minutes. Circulate throughout the room during this time to evaluate their progress and answer any questions.
