Activity Guide Discrepancy


#1

My district is planning on rolling out AP CS P next year and using the Code.org curriculum. I just started going through it using a teacher account and a student account side by side. I noticed that the Activity Guide for Unit 1 Lesson 2 on the teacher account (Binary Message Devices) is different from the resources in the student account (Sending Binary Messages). The sheets are very similar, but not the same.

I was considering having the students open the forms and submit them via Google classroom to save paper, but if the forms are different then what I am preparing for this could be problematic.

Is this intentional or a possible error?

Thank you for your help,

Josh

Hi @bbjosh13,

Thanks for reaching out. You should be seeing the same thing for both a students and a teacher account. However it sounds like the issue might be that you were looking at the old curriculum in one and the new curriculum in the other. We are currently in the process of doing some reordering and improvements to the curriculum in response to the great feedback we got from teachers. The links for the old and the new version are slightly different so its a good thing to check. For unit 1 for instance:

Old: studio.code.org/s/cspunit1
New studio.code.org/s/csp1

There is a new landing page that helps clarify some of this which can be found : curriculum.code.org/csp .

Let me know if you still have questions about this.

Thank you Dani. That makes sense.

I will delete the class and start over to see if that resolves the problem.

I’m interested in doing something similar as the person above, how do I open up a student version of the curriculum?

HI,

The student and teacher view are almost exactly the same.

Here are the differences:

  • Teachers have the View Lesson Plan link under the name of Stages on Code Studio
  • Teachers have a Teacher Answer viewer that pulls out from the right side
  • Approved teachers have access to answer keys, assessments, and exemplar projects in the teacher only answer sections of code studio.

Here are some pictures to help explain:
