FFA Creed Assignment for Principles of ANFR
Reciting the creed is a major test grade for all students in Principles of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources and is required for a member to be eligible to receive their FFA Greenhand Degree. All reciting of the creed will be during class and in front of the room.
For the maximum grade of 100, the creed will be recited in its entirety at one time with minimal mistakes, missed words and bobbles.
For a maximum of 90, you may recite the creed one or more paragraphs at a time, over no more than 5 days all in one calendar week (Monday-Friday). The more you say at one time the higher your grade will be. Deductions will be taken for mistakes, missed words and bobbles.
While you are reciting the creed I will help you if you become stuck but remember your grade will be adjusted if you have too many mistakes. If too excessive you will not receive credit for the paragraph.
If you need additional copies of the creed you can find them online. Go to www.ffa.org and click on the link that says Creed or you can Google “FFA creed”.
The creed will be recited at the beginning of class only, for anyone who would like to recite it before the deadline. On the last day we will use as much class time as needed. The last day to recite the creed is September 22, 2017.
If you would like to compete in the Greenhand creed contest at the Greenhand meeting you will need to let me know before September 30th. The winner of the Greenhand creed contest will get a free FFA jacket and will be our contestant for the district Jr. Creed Speaking Contest.
