CSAwesome is, well...Awesome!
This curriculum is great for both students and teachers. The built in explanations, diagrams, and examples, along with the scaffolding of questions help students learn and be confident in what they are doing. It is great for our district because we are a one-to-one school with Chromebooks since the IDE is built into the site. The resources and support given to the teachers is comprehensive and amazing. This is one of the most enriching curriculums I have come across.
Student-friendly curriculum and a supportive community
As the only Computer Science teacher at the high school for the last 5+ years, I have often felt isolated and without support. In the first year of teaching AP CSA, I know that I did not have the resources needed to be as successful as my students deserved. When the opportunity was presented by CSAwesome to participate in their professional development program, their active user group and their excellent curriculum, I jumped at the chance, and I am so glad I did! I have finally found a student-friendly curriculum and a supportive community, both of which are helping us take our CS program to the next level. Their support, guidance and patience rank far above any other PD organizations I’ve ever worked with in my 20+ years of teaching. Thanks, CSAwesome!!
