Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Vocational, Adult, and Community Education.
This document contains vocational education program courses standards (curriculum frameworks and student performance standards) for exploratory courses, practical arts courses, and job preparatory programs in technology education offered at the secondary or postsecondary level as a part of Florida's comprehensive vocational education program. Standards are mandated by Florida law. Each program course standard is composed of two parts: a curriculum framework and student performance standards. The curriculum framework includes four major sections: major concepts and content, laboratory activities, special notes, and intended outcomes. Student performance standards are listed for each intended outcome. For secondary job preparatory programs, courses are designated with student performance standards listed for each course. Program and course standards are based upon competencies required for using technology in life and in work. They also are designed to provide all students with technological literacy as it applies to a variety of occupations. Competencies and standards are provided for the following occupational categories: drafting, electronics, communications, construction, manufacturing, production, energy, power, transportation, aerospace, engineering, and supporting content areas. Applied learning activities are to be conducted in a laboratory setting with a minimum of 75 percent hands-on experiences with technological tools, machines, instruments, materials, processes, and systems.
