Mission and purpose
The mission and purposes of Advanced Studies courses are synonymous with the Career-Technical Education mission and purposes as described in the Career-Technical Education Standard Course of Study, 2002. The mission of Career-Technical Education is to help empower students for effective participation in an global economy as world-class workers and citizens.Career-Technical Education fulfills this mission by:
Preparing students for further career-technical education and lifelong learning.
Preparing students for initial and continued employment.
Applying and reinforcing related learning from other disciplines.
Preparing students to make informed consumer decisions and apply practical life skills.
Making appropriate provisions for students to succeed in Career-Technical Education programs.
A culminating course, Advanced Studies focuses on an essential question in a selected career pathway containing three technical credits. Two courses are to be a first and second level course and one enhancement course. The course is applicable to all Career-Technical Education program areas. The course projects include a paper, a working portfolio, a presentation, and a project. As a base for developing the course project, students use knowledge, skills, and attitude attained from previous courses taken. The project must be of sufficient depth to require extensive review of literature. With mentor assistance and interviews, the project should lend itself to identification of a problem, examination of possible solutions or directions, and analysis of the impact of solutions. In addition, they will write, speak, solve problems, and use life skills such as time management and organization. Students work under the guidance of a Career-Technical Education teacher/facilitator in collaboration with community partners, business representatives, and other school-based personnel. Skill development and career-technical student organization leadership activities provide opportunities to apply instructional competencies and workplace readiness skills to authentic experiences.
Assisting students in making educational and career decisions.
