Careers in Agriculture
  • Plant and Soil Science

2
Common Core/ Next Generation Science Standards
Addressed
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.4 - Determine the
    meaning of symbols, key terms, and other
    domain-specific words and phrases as they are
    used in a specific scientific or technical
    context relevant to grades 910 texts and topics.
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.5 - Analyze the
    structure of the relationships among concepts in
    a text, including relationships among key terms
    (e.g., force, friction, reaction force, energy).
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.9 - Compare and
    contrast findings presented in a text to those
    from other sources (including their own
    experiments), noting when the findings support or
    contradict previous explanations or accounts.

Agriculture, Food and Natural Resource standards
addressed!
  • CRP.10.01. Identify career opportunities within a
    career cluster that match personal interests,
    talents, goals and preferences.
  • Sample Measurement The following sample
    measurement strands are provided to guide the
    development of measurable activities (at
    different levels of proficiency) to assess
    students attainment of knowledge and skills
    related to the above performance indicator. The
    topics represented by each strand are not
    all-encompassing.
  • CRP.10.01.01.a. Determine personal interests,
    talents, goals and preferences for potential

What are some career and entrepreneurship
opportunities and expectations in plant and soil
science?
  • There are many career opportunities in plant and
    soils science

  • Experiences are related to class content and
    career interests of student
  • The student, the students parents or guardian,
    the agriculture teacher, and the business owner
    plan these experiences jointly
