Secondary vocational-technical education programs in Mississippi are faced with many challenges resulting from sweeping educational reforms at the national and state levels. Schools and teachers are increasingly being held accountable for providing true learning activities to every student in the classroom. This accountability is measured through increased requirements for mastery and attainment of competency as documented through both formative and summative assessments. The courses in this document reflect the statutory requirements as found in Section 37-3-49, Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended (Section 37-3-46). In addition, this curriculum reflects guidelines imposed by federal and state mandates (Laws, 1988, ch. 487, Section 14; Laws, 1991, ch. 423, Section 1; Laws, 1992, ch. 519, Section 4 effective from and after July 1, 1992; Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act III, 1998; and No Child Left Behind Act of 2001). General Drafting is an instructional program designed to teach students to produce workable drawings on the drawing board and with the computer. Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be qualified for an entry level drafting or related position or may pursue postsecondary education. General Drafting I is the entry level course of the secondary General Drafting program. Students will gain foundation competencies related to orientation, safety, leadership and personal development, and drafting and CAD skills. Students receive 2-2.5 Carnegie units, depending upon time spent in the course. General Drafting II is the exit level course of the secondary General Drafting program. Students will gain foundation competencies related to orientation, safety, advanced leadership and personal development, architectural drafting, and CAD skills. The architectural drafting section includes floor plans, elevations, foundations, and sections. Students receive 2-2.5 Carnegie units, depending upon time spent in the course. The content of this curriculum framework is based on national standards as developed by the American Design Drafting Association. Appended are: (1) American Design Drafting Association Skill Standards; (2) Academic Standards; (3) Workplace Skills for the 21st Century; and (4) National Educational Technology Standards for Students. A list of suggested references is provided for each unit. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
