Commercial Art: Scope and Sequence.
Nashville - Davidson County Metropolitan Public Schools, TN.
This scope and sequence guide, developed for a commercial art vocational education program, represents an initial step in the development of a systemwide articulated curriculum sequence for all vocational programs within the Metropolitan Nashville Public School System. It was developed as a result of needs expressed by teachers, parents, and the business community for sequential structure within the vocational education curriculum. The guide contains an introduction, course description, general course objectives, course content (with specific objectives) in outline format, and a list of resource materials, such as textbooks, curriculum guides, audiovisual aids, and reference books. This three-year commercial art course covers the following topics: basic drawing, lettering, layout, design, color and painting related to advertising art, principles of advertising, printing theory, and mechanicals. The program requires preparation of a portfolio, and provides students the opportunity to participate in Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) leadership training, and in local, state, and national skills competitions.
