RULE §130.90Audio/Video Production II Lab (One Credit), Adopted 2015

(a) General requirements. This course is recommended for students in Grades 10-12. Prerequisite: Audio/Video Production I. Corequisite: Audio/Video Production II. This course must be taken concurrently with Audio/Video Production II and may not be taken as a stand-alone course. Districts are encouraged to offer this lab in a consecutive block with Audio/Video Production II to allow students sufficient time to master the content of both courses. Students shall be awarded one credit for successful completion of this course.

(b) Introduction.

  (1) Career and technical education instruction provides content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills for students to further their education and succeed in current or emerging professions.

  (2) The Arts, Audio/Video Technology, and Communications Career Cluster focuses on careers in designing, producing, exhibiting, performing, writing, and publishing multimedia content, including visual and performing arts and design, journalism, and entertainment services.

  (3) Careers in audio and video technology and film production span all aspects of the audio/video communications industry. Building upon the concepts taught in Audio/Video Production, in addition to developing advanced knowledge and skills needed for success in the Arts, Audio/Video Technology, and Communications Career Cluster, students will be expected to develop an advanced understanding of the industry with a focus on pre-production, production, and post-production products. Through diverse forms of storytelling and production, students will exercise and develop creativity, intellectual curiosity, and critical-thinking, problem-solving, and collaborative skills. This course may be implemented in an audio format or a format with both audio and video. Requiring a lab corequisite for the course affords necessary time devoted specifically to the production and post-production process.
