WeTeach_CS teachers have had a busy summer! Starting with the 2018 WeTeach_CS Summit and Deep Dives, and continuing throughout the summer with numerous Certification Prep, WeTeach_Java, Launch CS, Bootstrap, 3D printing workshops, and more! Teachers have also taken part in professional development events hosted by our WeTeach_CS Collaboratives across state.

Now it’s time to start thinking about returning to the classroom for the 2018-19 school year and sharing all of the CS knowledge and enthusiasm you’ve acquired, be sure to stay connected to WeTeach_CS. We want to make sure our teachers and everyone interested in CS for All in Texas stay up to date on the latest CS education news, resources, and programs we have to offer. And the best way to do that is to su

bscribe to the WeTeach_CS blog, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

And if you’re interested not only in CS, but in all things STEM education as well, then be sure to follow the UT Center for STEM Education on Twitter and Facebook as well!

 

WeTeach_CS Online Courses and Curriculum

WeTeach_CS for HS

The WeTeach_CS for HS curriculum will guide new computer science teachers through the challenges of a first-year computer science course at the high school level. The course uses three programming platforms, Scratch, Jeroo, and Java, to progressively develop students through more challenging content. This 100% TEKS aligned curriculum provides more than enough lessons, labs, projects, and assessments (both formative and summative) for a typical school year of approximately 160 instructional days and includes extra materials to challenge accelerated students. Additionally, the teacher has access to videos, discussion boards, online professional support, and virtual office hours with the course developers to provide them with the tools they need to master the curriculum and content. WeTeach_CS for HS is a comprehensive curriculum designed to support new computer science teachers establishing an entire CS program within their school, starting at the ground level. More information
