The Safety in Agriculture for Youth (SAY) Project provides a clearinghouse for agricultural safety and health curriculum and resources for those individuals who teach youth. The SAY National Clearinghouse consists of two different types of educational products: formal curricula and other supporting resources and provides their alignment to Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources (AFNR) Career Cluster Content Standards related to agricultural safety and health.
- AS.02: Animal Systems Career Pathway (Utilize best-practice protocols based upon animal behaviors for animal husbandry and welfare.)
- CS.03: AFNR Cluster Skills (Examine and summarize the importance of health, safety and environmental management systems in AFNR workplaces.)
- ESS.01: Environmental Service Systems Career Pathway (Use analytical procedures and instruments to manage environmental service systems.)
- ESS.05: Environmental Service Systems Career Pathway (Use tools, equipment, machinery and technology common to tasks in environmental service systems.)
- PS.03 Plant Systems Career Pathway (Propagate, culture and harvest plants and plants products based on current industry standards.)
- PST.02 Power, Structural and Technical Systems Career Pathway (Operate and maintain AFNR mechanical equipment and power systems.)
Material in the SAY National Clearinghouse are divided between curriculum and supporting resources which are defined below. The charts below indexes the curriculum and resources based on high, medium, or low alignment to the AFNR standard. To access the curriculum, simply click on the name of the curriculum for more information and/or how to access it. Alignment to AFNR are measured by high (H), medium (M), low (L), or no alignment (blank).
The term Formal Curriculum refers to material that: 1) has learning goals or objectives that are clearly stated; 2) includes subject matter content supportive of the learning goals or objectives; and 3) has an evaluation component (for example, some type of student assessment, such as a quiz). Most curricula are free but there are a few that have a fee.
The term Other Supporting Resource refers to more individualized, originally authored resources, such as technical fact sheet series, video clips, PowerPoint presentations, or other materials that lack one or more of the three elements of a Formal Curriculum. Both types of materials may be supportive of AFNR Career Cluster Content Standards and can be valuable educational materials for youth agricultural safety and health.
