This is a great post from a teacher who changed her 6th grade science class from earth science, a highly abstract topic for most students, to a coding class which has practical possibilities for all of them. Her situation is a little bit different because she is in a charter school, but she has practical recommendations for those who aren’t similarly situated. The blog post is especially important because knew absolutely nothing at all about coding before starting her first coding club.
The night before each club meeting, I would practice lessons on Codeacademy and then teach them to my students. We fell in love with coding together.
