DESCRIPTION: Agricultural education is a program of instruction that demands that enrollees be taught the basic knowledge, skills, and understandings which are needed for successful entry into the workforce. It is essential that this instruction be followed by application of what has been learned. In the area of psychomotor learning the basic knowledge is taught, the skills are explained and demonstrated, and then the learners apply their skills in a functional setting through directed lab experiences.

Two basic vehicles for structuring this learning process are the FFA and SAE programs. Both of these programs help establish leadership, personal development and work habit skills.
