CS Principles: Decoded —A Curriculum from Code.org

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Code.org is developing a rich set of instructional resources designed for high school teachers to meet the objectives of the AP Computer Science Principles framework. This workshop will provide teachers materials from the course, including daily lesson plans and instructional guides for an entire school year, along with new software and tools for students and teachers. The session will also give participants a taste of the professional development program designed to support instruction. Code.org’s curriculum is designed to be rigorous, but accessible for both high school students and instructors. This allows adequate time to explore and learn the principles of computing through a series of engaging activities, plugged and unplugged, employing a variety of instructional strategies. Participants will experience lessons, both as students and teachers, in the fashion of the professional development program, which helps teachers prepare lessons from the curriculum in realistic contexts.
