How I Use It
Code. org provides detail lesson plans with activities for the students to complete; in addition, there are extension and wrap up activities to support each lesson. The simulated activities are integrated and provides students with the hands-on reinforcement.
My Take
It a great resource to teach the new AP=Computer Science Principles course. Would love to see an expansion in the amount of content resources-at least links to these resources.
