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.
