Code.org CS Principles

Information

2 students complete a Code.org activity in their school computer lab.Educator Outcomes: The Computer Science Principles Professional Learning Program fee** includes 9 days of facilitation, curriculum guide, ongoing support, and stipends for each workshop day. During the 5-day summer workshop, participants will engage with the curriculum to prepare for the beginning of the school year, discuss best practices, and how to create a supportive classroom. During the academic year workshops, participants will experience upcoming lessons in the curriculum before they teach them, connect with their cohort to share how their implementation is going, and discuss instructional practices to support them.

This year-long course can be taught as an AP or non-AP course — no prerequisites are required for students or for teachers new to computer science! In addition, Code.org’s curriculum is available at no cost, for anyone to teach.

Student Outcomes: Students are introduced to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenged to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. More than a traditional introduction to programming, it is a rigorous, engaging, and approachable course that explores many of the foundational ideas of computing so all students understand how these concepts are transforming the world we live in.
