11 students, 9-12th Grades with little experience in CS.
U3L08 - Counter Pattern Unplugged
This lesson was a bit of a struggle as some students had already advanced past this level (they were independently working on levels) so I brought everyone back together to look at the counter variable. Having HS students, the steps for writing everything down was a bit tedious as most of my students could do it in their head, but then a few struggled to put that to their code. I don’t know if I’ll do the entire lesson next time, only because some students didn’t need the 45 minutes and since this was unplugged they got restless. I think for younger grades (6/7) this would be a great chance to pull everyone together for a moment to have a check in.
Also I had large sheets of paper and small groups work on each (pics below)
Note: There are a few typos on the sheet that I just explained to students… but opening now I see they’ve been corrected.
