ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE

These recommended free e-resources are specifically aligned with the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) curriculum framework as suggested in the CSEC Agricultural Science Syllabus. Resources are provided under each of the following five general topics of study as recommended by CXC:

 

The Business of Farming

Crop Production

Animal Production

Horticulture

Animal Management

 

The general aims of the syllabus are to:

  • Develop knowledge and understanding of the importance of agriculture to the economies of territories of the Caribbean region
  • Provide knowledge of the dynamic nature of agricultural production, post-production and marketing in a complex national, regional and international market
  • Develop an appreciation of the importance of agriculture in alleviating poverty, providing multiple pathways to employment and further education, ensuring food security and preservation of the environment.

 

NOTE: On completion, the student will be able to contribute to the development of the Ideal Caribbean Person as articulated by the CARICOM Heads of Government in the following areas: has developed the capacity to create and take advantage of opportunities to control, improve, maintain and promote physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being and to contribute to the health and welfare of the community and country; and nourishes in him/herself and in others, the fullest development of each person’s potential without gender stereotyping and embraces differences and similarities between females and males as a source of mutual strength. Based on the UNESCO Pillars of Learning, more specifically, through the study of Agricultural Science, the student can also contribute as a person who has learnt how to do, how to live together and how to transform themselves and society.
