Plan B - Emergency Lesson Plan


If you have reached this plan, I couldn't make it to class for some reason. You will have to carry on without me. So I'm just going to leave you to figure out a solution this problem - how do we get more educators, parents and kids interested in computer science? Watch the video & discuss it. Try out the Hour of Code and CS Unplugged to see how others are trying to increase interest. Continue to share your thoughts.



Discussion Questions:

  • Should everybody in the country learn to code?
  • Why do only 9% of US high schools offer computer science courses?
  • What advice do you have for educators on how to encourage more kids to try computer science?

Do the Hour of Code!

Pick some Hour of Code tutorials to try out. If you don't like one try, another. These are self-contained tutorials with instructions. If you get stuck, find someone else working on that tutorial and put your heads together to figure it out. Here are some suggestions!

Computer Science Unplugged!

Can you learn how to do the Card Flip Magic trick?
