My Students

This is my second cohort of Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles students. Last year I had seven students in our inaugural class and again this year I have seven students. All these students are seniors. I have one female student and the remaining students are males. Most if not all of these students are college bound.

While all are seniors, my students are involved in various other activities in our school.

My students are on the soccer, cross country, basketball, wrestling and track teams at our school. They are part of our Computer Club, National Honor Society and band.

My Project

I am teaching an Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles class using the Beauty and Joy of Computing curriculum. I will use the information from this seminar to enhance my teaching of this course. As the conference is in February, I will have the remainder that month and then the remainder of the school year until the AP tests are given to share my knowledge with my students.

At present, some of my students are having a couple of issues with several of the concepts in SNAP!

Upon completion of this workshop, I hope to be able to learn some concepts to be able to better teach these concepts to my students. Some of the concepts that I hope to be able to better teach my students include the graphing part and the use of lists.
