You may have heard of www.Code.org from the “Hour of Code” opportunity that students from around the globe participate in? The same group is offering a program to help prepare educators for their first year of teaching Computer Science to High School students. This program is recommended for those students in grades 9-12 who have strong reading and writing skills.
As described on the website:
- Participants kick off the Professional Learning Program with a 5-day workshop
- Explore the curriculum and learning tools, discuss classroom management and teaching strategies, and build a community of teachers.
- With a focus on a customized experience, participants will develop skills while working in small groups to deepen their understanding of the materials.
Ongoing Support, throughout following academic year:
- Participants attend local, 1-day quarterly workshops hosted by Code.org Regional Partners”
This is a fantastic opportunity for those entering their first year of teaching computer science and are looking for additional guidance and ongoing support!
