Flowcharts in lieu of or in conjunction with pseudocode

My students are struggling with pseudocode. As many, they make it too “code like” or don’t seem to grasp the concept fully. Is there a place in the Code.org APCSA curriculum that discusses/teachers flowcharting? I am wondering if this might help them with decomposing and pseudocoding as it visually “flows” through processes instead of immediately going to pseudocode where we are “linearlizing” the process?

@ron.knapper - Flowcharting is not a main topic in any one lesson in the CSA Curriculum. I do like the idea of incorporating a flowchart lesson prior to or in conjunction with pseudocode. Here are a couple of resources I found that may be helpful.


Thank you, I know some of my students will benefit from looking at alternative ways to think through algorithms.
