As you think about how you currently are or how you might in the future teach Computer Science using any of the code.org or Code Studio resources, what's your plan?
My plan is to bring this CS Science course to my 4 classrooms of fifth and sixth graders throughout the year. I need to bring this to all of my students whether s/he is an ELL student or a diverse learner.
What are your goals for your classroom? The goal is for me to have the materials accessible for all of my students so that everyone will have the opportunity to learn coding.
How will CS or code.org resources help you meet those goals? The resources is a good guideline for me to work with to modify for my students.
What are you most excited about when it comes to implementing some of these resources? I am most excited about implementing the unplugged sections for students to correlate what it means to what they are asked to do in coding.
What challenges do you forsee in trying to meet your goals? I see many challenges trying to meet my goals is mainly time! Time is the largest factor which is a double edge sword, especially with all the new testing our students need to endure throughout the year not once but multiple times. Therefore, completing the modules as completely as I would wish would be the challenge for time is not on our side.
What questions do you have that this community might help you answer? I am dire need of materials that is translated correctly in Chinese for my ELL students.
