What are Frameworks?

The length and scope of content of every educational program offered by a public school in Florida is defined by a set of requirements for student achievement, called frameworks, that are mandated by the Florida Department of Education. The Commercial Art Technology Program is no different. These frameworks are the driving reason that determine the content that will be delivered for this program.

It is the responsibility of the instructor to interpret those frameworks and design a curriculum that ensures that graduates of the program have met those requirements defined by the program frameworks.

Because we are a vocational educational institution, every vocational instructor here at Traviss looks at those frameworks and designs a course of study that incorporates the state mandated frameworks as well as the demands of a constantly changing workplace. It is a balancing act to include everything that the state requires and the work place expects.

This program has been organized into units that satisfy specific frameworks. The table on this page contains links to pages that describe the assignments that make up units of instruction and the frameworks that these units satisfy.

The Class Period Guidelines are meant for reference only. The Class Periods Allowed for each unit are based on the time value for each project. I have determined these times based on both past student performance and my expectations for .

As you can see this doesn't allows for much additional time to participate in enrichment activities such as Screen Printing and Sign Making or Skills USA competitions. It is especially important for Adult students to be aware of the total scope of assignments I expect for successful completion of this program.
