The goal of this club is to expose the middle school students to business skills in the area of budgeting, fundraising, local business partnerships, and business ethics. This exposure is necessary to engage them in Career and Technical certifications available to them during their high school years. The growth of the CTE program at Taylor Middle High and Career Technical Education certifications will then provide funding to expand these clubs and increase interest and knowledge in the skills necessary to enter the fast paced and technologically advancing work force. Currently we do not have CTE CAPE funds available to purchase any new equipment because obtaining CTE certifications was not previously prioritized. Keeping that in mind, we currently are lacking on funds that would expand our school’s CTE curriculum and meet the demands necessary to properly explore the basic photo editing skills (the needed equipment) that are of utmost importance to obtain the certifications. This would be our funding start point, and in the future, we would look to CAPE funding to sustain costs of updating and implementing new equipment. Local business partnerships will further allow students to gain a real world understanding of marketing practices, cash flow and business sustainability. All of which lead to an understanding and inherent reflection on the community partnerships that are necessary to successfully sustain a growing business while meeting the ever-changing market demands.

CTE Standards that will be connected to this grant include: 01.0 Demonstrate knowledge of presentation production issues, 02.0 Demonstrate basic computer knowledge, 03.0 Demonstrate knowledge of digital still photography, and 04.0 Demonstrate knowledge of photo editing software. Florida Standards:

LAFS.910.RST.2.4 – Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 9–10 texts and topics. LAFS.910.RST.3.7 –Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words. LAFS.910.RST.3.8 – Assess the extent to which the reasoning and evidence in a text support the author’s claim or a recommendation for solving a scientific or technical problem. LAFS.910.WHST.2.4 – Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
LAFS.910.WHST.2.5 – Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting,
or trying a new approach, focusing on addressing what is most significant for a specific purpose and
audience. LAFS.910.WHST.2.6 – Use technology, including the Internet, to produce, publish, and update
individual or shared writing products, taking advantage of technology’s capacity to link to other
information and to display information flexibly and dynamically. LAFS.910.WHST.3.7 – Conduct short as

solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the
subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. LAFS.910.WHST.3.8 – Gather
relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches
effectively; assess the usefulness of each source in answering the research question; integrate

What will be done with my students

This middle school club will meet once per week beginning in November. This club is meant to promote creativity through photography while allowing students direct involvement in a real world publication business. It will allow students the ability to share and critique the photographs of peers, to educate and improve technical skills, and to spread the love of photography and career technical education throughout the Taylor Middle High school while implementing strong business partnerships with the local community. 

 

Benefits to my students

The yearbook is a publication that reflects the events and lives of people involved with their school during their school year. Students will gain business skills in the area of budgeting, fundraising, local business partnerships, and business ethics. Students will also get a basic understanding of Journalism that includes writing for an audience and proper procedures for information dissemination. In the area of Career Technical Education, they will learn picture taking skills and basic photo editing skills using Photoshop. Which will lead into the continuation of high school Adobe CTE certifications.
