Title:
TEACHING HERBACEOUS PLANT PROPAGATION LABORATORIES

IMPORTANT PRELIMINARY CONSIDERATIONS

In teaching plant propagation laboratories, or for that matter, teaching laboratories of any sort, the objectives of the exercise must be clearly stated. Does the exercise teach a practical propagation technique? Does the exercise teach important principles of propagation? It is important that these objectives be clearly stated and that evaluation of the results be assessed in relationship to these objectives at the conclusion of the experiment.

Another important consideration is the students' preparation prior to beginning the exercises in question. It is important that they have adequate opportunity to learn fundamentals of plant science, including plant structure and functions. They should also have a reasonable knowledge of the equipment and materials required for completion of the exercise. These fundamental concepts can be taught through the vehicle of prerequisite courses or through the preliminary parts of the propagation course that precede
