Floral Design and Production, Advanced
Advanced Floral Design & Production
Prerequisite: Floral Design & Production
Students will develop advanced skills in floral and horticulture industries with an emphasis on commercial design and greenhouse skills by focusing on management skills necessary to work in and operate a retail or wholesale floral business and commercial greenhouse. Sales and marketing techniques, career opportunities, customer service and employability skills, and leadership are emphasized. Students will build on knowledge of soils and media, fertilizer, plant propagation techniques and floral design principals to produce floral arrangements and greenhouse crops. Active participation in greenhouse and outdoor plant production are required.
Topics will be learned through a combination of reading, lecture, notes, hands-on labs and activities, projects, presentations and field trips. Special design projects and possible involvement in regional floral/horticultural shows may be addressed. Quality workmanship is critical to student success. Student leadership development will be an integral portion of the curriculum provided through the FFA chapter. All students enrolled in this program are encouraged to be an active FFA member through activities and events held by our chapter.
Theory of Action
Career and Technical education courses introduce students to a variety of high demand and high skill career pathways and connect the student's future career goals to innovative learning environments. With an emphasis on real world, real life skills, Career and Technical Education takes students where they need to go to be prepared for their future. Through integrating and applying 21st century skills, technical knowledge, and core academic learnings, our goal is that every student will graduate from EHS prepared for the job market and postsecondary education. Whether students plan to go to work straight out of high school or eventually earn a PhD, whether they have a set clear career goal or just want to learn something practical and new, all students benefit from participating in CTE courses and programs of study.
