Time required to finish Unit 3?


#1

I’m new in teaching CSP, in order to practice and regarding time given in my school, after your experience, how many periods are needed to complete Unit 3 (1 period = 60 min)


#2

If you want to do everything including the project at the end and some sort of assessment, I think the absolute minimum you could get away with is about 12 60 minute periods. Possibly as many as 15-16 depending on how much class time you want to give for the practice PT at the end, and if you want to spread a couple of the lessons out a bit. My classes were able to complete each “stage” on Code Studio in one 60 minute class period each, but I have relatively small classes and I required them to do anything they didn’t finish in that day’s class for homework.

Thanks for your reply. I actually have also a small class (4 students). Its an elective course. They took like 4 periods a week. Its part of Grade 12 (about 120 periods all year). I decide this year to add some CSP courses to Flash, Illustrator and Game making courses.
I really need some help starting term II.
