Coding: it's a word that's been getting a lot of media attention recently. Through computer coding experiences your students can develop logical thinking, persistence and enhanced communication skills. In this fully online course will learn how to teach the fundamentals of coding and explore ways to integrate coding into your classroom curriculum. The readings and activities in this course support the Common Core Mathematics Content and Practice Standards, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and the ISTE Standards for Computer Science Educators. This course may be completed with or without students.

This course is applicable towards the STEM Teaching Certificate.

Instructor
As a beginning mathematics teacher at an urban high school, I quickly realized that drawing on student interests and experiences was essential to engaged learning. This insight has guided my work in education as a K-12 instructional coach, a developer of mathematics curriculum, and an instructor of professional development. My courses aim to create space for teachers to gather around relevant ideas and practical experiences as they deepen their knowledge and professional practice. Course topics reflect the concerns and curiosities of practicing teachers, equipping them to directly apply learning to classroom teaching. I value the diverse perspectives that Fresno Pacific University students bring to the learning community, and I hope that participants in my courses will be as inspired as I have been by the ideas and dialogue generated here.
