My Ag Biology Journey to Careers class is studying the agriculture, food, and natural resources career cluster.   I want to expand their concept of the agriculture field, so they can understand the vast variety of careers in this cluster.  We also need to know how Agriculture uses Technology in the industry.

Key Questions

  • Describe your career.  What are some typical work tasks you perform on a regular basis?
  • How did you get involved in the industry?
  • What recommendations do you have for students for activities are classes they can get involved in during high school to prepare for a career in this field?
  • What post-secondary options are available for students after high school that want a career in this field?
  • What specialized skills are required of individuals in this industry?
  • What soft skills are important to have for someone to be successful in your industry?
  • Other pre-approved student questions will be asked related to this career cluster.

Expected Outcomes

I want my students to understand the wide scope of this career cluster.  When they hear "agriculture, food, and natural resources" they automatically think of farming.  I want them to realize the diversity of careers available in this field.  I would also like them to understand what they can do in high school to get involved in the agriculture industry, possible internships/ employment opportunities.  Finally, I want them to understand what skills are required to be successful in this field.
