This packet contains a program guide and Career Merit Achievement Plan (Career MAP) for the implementation of a computer programming curriculum in Florida secondary and postsecondary schools. The program guide describes the program content and structure, provides a program description, lists job titles under the program, and includes a curriculum framework and student performance standards for computer programing courses. The curriculum framework outlines major concepts and content, laboratory activities, program specifics, and intended outcomes; the student performance standards guide lists each standard and the behaviors expected to show mastery of each standard. The guide also provides information on the following: facilities, equipment, and supplies, and safety for computer programing classrooms and laboratories; program implementation; teacher professional development, teacher certification, professional organizations and support services; and instructional resources (a listing of sources for print materials, audiovisuals, and computer software programs; and a list of 49 teacher-recommended print materials, 1 teacher-recommended audiovisual, and 7 teacher-recommended software programs). Appended to the program guide is a sample student learning guide that includes program title, intended outcome, learning activities with resources, procedures, information sheets, and self-check with answers. The Career MAP is a checklist, to be kept by student and teacher, of student progress in the competencies required for entry into jobs in the computer programing field. (KC)
