Unit 5 – Putting it all together. Showing what you know

In this unit, we will be putting together all that we have learned about computer science as a set of literacies and how we can put this this new knowledge and skills into practice in schools and classrooms.

For this unit, the work you do depends upon which program you are in.

Here is the work:

A. Design. Now that you have spent the semester learning about the history of CS in education, learned some text based coding, visualized some data, and programmed robots to do cool things, it is time to apply what you have done to classroom projects or activities that you can use with students. So, you are doing to design a project which your students could do in your classroom using the tools and skills we developed in this course. Your project should include:

1. Essential Questions and Learning Objectives for the project.

2. Clear guidelines for the project which you would give the student.

3. An assessment rubric.


B. Course Portfolio. 

As a last assignment, you will do two things. First, gather up what you consider to be your best work for this course and then reflect on what you learned, what you accomplished, and where your thinking is now about teaching computer science in schools.

You can do this by creating a blog post and then linking to your best work and add a little commentary explaining your choices.

This work is due by Monday May 11th. Use the tag: #cs4teachersportfolio2020
