This document is a course of study to provide high school students with an introduction to television production skills and techniques and to provide a framework for developing critical television viewing skills. The nine units of the course introduce students to storyboards, camera operations, lighting, audio, video recording, graphics, scripting, commercials, and news gathering. Each unit's goal for student learning is broken down into objectives, with suggested learning activities, resources, and assessment procedures included for each objective. A variety of instructional materials and resource sheets are provided; some are suitable for reproduction and handout to students, while others provide information for the teacher. Glossaries for each unit and a bibliography also are included in the package. A list of expected competencies for the student is supplied in the appendix. It is expected that a student who accomplishes the tasks and objectives will be able to serve in an internship program at a local cable television studio. The activities and competencies gained through the course also will provide students with an insight into careers in television production and give them a foundation for entrance into post-high school production courses.
