Since the passage of the Smith-Hughes Act in 1917, teachers of vocational agriculture have been using a variety of practices in supervising the farming programs of all-day students.

This study has been conducted in order to isolate the most effective practices. It deals with the practices used by thirty-two selected Texas Negro teachers of vocational agriculture in supervising the farming programs of all-day students on the home farm.

These selected teachers have been rated successful in their profession by their area supervisors.

The use of some of these practices which were rated high, in this study, should result in teachers of vocational agriculture doing a more effective job of supervising the farming programs of their all-day students.

The study deals only with thirty-two teachers who have a successful total program of vocational agriculture. They were not selected on the basis of their ability in supervising the farming program of all-day students but on their ability to conduct a well-rounded program of vocational agriculture.
