Agricultural Education consist of three elements
1. Organized Instruction is the classroom instruction carried out in a laboratory, shop, greenhouse, school farm, field trips, etc.
2. Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAE) is individual student application of knowledge and skills required through classroom instruction and put to practical use outside the classroom under supervision of the agricultural education teacher.
3. FFA Activities requires a combination of classroom instruction, laboratory activities, and supervised agricultural experience. Numerous FFA activities requires students to become prepared by study and experience in each of these three phases.
