Curriculum Mapping for Block Schedule


#1

Hello, am 1st time AP CSP teacher. Wondering how many lessons can be comfortable taught in each block (95 minute)

Hey @nsuresh sorry this fell through the cracks. While I’m sure there’s a variety of responses teachers would give based on their situations, our lessons are designed for roughly a 50 minute class period unless noted otherwise. I’d estimate you should aim to get through roughly 2 lessons a period though as we note in the Curriculum Guide on page 43, we know our estimates can sometimes be a little aggressive.

Hopefully that helps a little!

Hi @nsuresh,

Another teacher recently posted his schedule. His school started beginning of September and he’s on an A/B block schedule (with all periods on Monday). Not sure if it’s the same as your situation, but hopefully it’s helpful…

Frank,

Thank you very much. I am having a problem with code.org. I am using google classroom with code.org. I have a student registered with my google classroom but not showing up in code.org. I have 32 studnets and was able to sync all 31 but this one student is not showing up on code.org.

He completed all assignments till lesson 9 and I just realized that his score is not recording in code studio.

Please advice.

Thanks,

Nalini

Try emailing support@code.org and include those details.

@nsuresh did this student enter your classroom “late”. If the student joined classroom AFTER you made your code.org section through classroom, you need to refresh your roster - I needed to do that in my class.

Here are the directions from support.code.org:

Q&A: How do I re-sync my list of students?

If your Google Classroom or Clever roster gets updated, you can sync your list of students in Code.org by going to your Code.org section, clicking on the “Manage students” tab, and hitting the button to “Sync students from Google Classroom” or “Sync students from Clever.”
