Computer Science Fundamentals
Professional Learning for Teachers:
Computer Science Fundamentals was built with elementary school educators in mind. The courses have been specifically tailored to students in Kindergarten-5th grade, with no prior experience assumed or needed.
The curriculum supports teachers new to the discipline with daily lesson plans made up of inquiry-based activities, videos, assessments, and computing tools that empower students to discover core computing concepts.
The courses are roughly aligned to each year of elementary school, allowing for the most robust content along the entire elementary pipeline. The core content of these courses range from approximately 12 lessons in the early grades to nearly 20 lessons in the upper grades.
Computer Science Discoveries
The Code.org Professional Learning Program has both in-person and online supports designed to prepare teachers before and during their first year teaching CS Discoveries.
