Students in this inquiry-based course use arts processes to explore and imagine new connections and/or postulate solutions to real-world problems. Using a combined seminar, studio, and business management approach, this teacher-facilitated, yet highly independent setting requires that students use their individual strengths and interests in one or more arts, in combination with other content areas and current and emerging technology as needed, to examine local, cultural, historical, technical, and/or global interests relative to life and work in a creative, global economy. Significant independent research, class discussion, and analysis are required.
Time, materials, and technologies needed for project development should be provided to students to the greatest extent possible. This course requires significant independent research and project development, some of which may necessitate out-of-school and/or off-campus class work. Interaction with an individual and/or group for consultation, project development, or service may also require out-of-school and/or off-campus time. In-person interaction is strongly encouraged; frequency and distance may determine the degree to which technology-supported interaction is necessary in place of, or in addition to, face-to-face interaction.
Honors and Advanced Level Course Note: Advanced courses require a greater demand on students through increased academic rigor. Academic rigor is obtained through the application, analysis, evaluation, and creation of complex ideas that are often abstract and multi-faceted. Students are challenged to think and collaborate critically on the content they are learning. Honors level rigor will be achieved by increasing text complexity through text selection, focus on high-level qualitative measures, and complexity of task. Instruction will be structured to give students a deeper understanding of conceptual themes and organization within and across disciplines. Academic rigor is more than simply assigning to students a greater quantity of work.
Florida’s Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) StandardsEnglish Language Development ELD Standards Special Notes Section:
This course includes Florida’s B.E.S.T. ELA Expectations (EE) and Mathematical Thinking and Reasoning Standards (MTRs) for students. Florida educators should intentionally embed these standards within the content and their instruction as applicable. For guidance on the implementation of the EEs and MTRs, please visit and select the appropriate B.E.S.T. Standards package.
Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting. For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills.
