Dreamweaver Comprehensive Concepts and Techniques, 2007.

Software: The primary software use for this course includes Macromedia Suite 8 and the Office 2007 Suite. Various

transfer skills in class to applications outside of classroom.
Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). FBLA is a co-curricular student organization in Business that
promotes leadership, career planning, community service, and social networking. Membership is strongly
encouraged for all students enrolled in this course. Dues are $15 for local, state, & national membership. Special

Articulation/College Credit: Articulation is a partnership agreement between Lanier Technical College and
Gwinnett Technical College with our school system. This allows a student to earn college credit for courses taken in
high school if criteria are met by the student. Specific requirements to receive credit apply.
Careers: Career opportunities related to the standards reviewed in this class include: Web Designer, Graphic Artist,
Programmer, Web Project Manager Database Administrator, Instructional Designer, Hardware Design Engineer,
Digital Graphic Editor, and Web Graphic Animator.
Internet Usage in Class Setting: In order to enhance student learning, students will use the Internet daily as a
resource tool for this class. While in a business lab, students will comply with all Barrow County Schools guidelines.
Failure to follow county mandated guidelines would result in punishment that ranges from loss of privileges to
administrative referral. All students and parents are required to sign acknowledgement of Internet guidelines prior
to a student using the Internet. Students should not play “games” or watch “videos” online.
End-of-Pathway Assessment: After completing the three courses in any pathway, students will be prepared to
take an End-of-Pathway exam to certify knowledge, skill and understanding. Completing the assessment
successfully, allows the student to earn industry credentials. This mandate for end of pathway assessment, set forth
in the new Perkins IV Legislation, requires states to implement a mechanism to ascertain the level of the technical
skill attainment on behalf of its CTAE students.
