You’ve been asked to teach coding – now what?

In this mini-series of hands-on sessions, you will gain the basic knowledge of how to teach and assess coding at the Middle and High School levels. We will begin with the basics and build on that to get your feet on solid ground with this topic you’ve been tasked to teach. No prior knowledge of coding is necessary to take these sessions, just come with a willingness to learn. We will explore together how to teach coding.

Session 1 – What is coding and how do I get started?
Session 2 – Teaching Coding – focus on SCRATCH and introductions
Session 3 – Let’s get started! We will code a basic program today. (This is a good place to start with your students also.)
Session 4 – Digging deeper with code
Session 5 – How to assess student work
Session 6 – Where do we go from here? You will leave with the resources and tools to build on what we have learned in these sessions and provide a meaningful coding class at your school.
