                The purpose of this course is to assist students in making informed decisions regarding their future academic and occupational goals and to provide information regarding careers in the Arts, A/V Technology and Communication career cluster. The content includes, but is not limited to, leadership and employability skills, career exploration, project development, and the utilization of technology.  Instruction and learning activities are provided in a laboratory setting using hands-on experiences with the equipment, materials and technology appropriate to the course content and in accordance with current practices.     

    Classroom Expectations/Rules:

    2. Raise your hand to participate in class. Sharing your answers, participating in discussions and asking questions are expected; however, you should not talk when the teacher or another student is speaking.
    3. Keep all food and drinks away from the computers. We want to take proper care of our classroom equipment.
