Planning to get CS certified this fall? Let WeTeach_CS help you prepare! The fall session of our online certification prep course, Foundations of Computer Science for Teachers, will open September 1, 2017 on the Center for STEM Education’s new event and professional development portal, UTakeIt. Register today!
With the next TExES 241 CS 8-12 certification exam window set for December 4-9, the best time to get prepared is now! Give John Owen and the WeTeach_CS Team two days and they’ll tell you what you’ll need to know to pass the TExES 241 CS 8-12 certification exam and collect your $1000 stipend. But you have to act soon, there are only 40 seats in this workshop and our Certification Prep Face-2-Face events have been known to sell out. Register Today!
WeTeach_CS is thrilled to be partnering with Oracle Academy again to offer the popular Keep Calm and Java On virtual courses again this fall–for free! But interested teachers need to hurry, because registration closes on September 12th.
What can Counselors and Administrators do to increase student access to Computer Science classes and career pathways? Computer Science Training for Counselors & Administrators participants will learn about the national and local technology landscape, who is (and is not) involved in this fast-growing employment sector, and why diverse participation matters. This session will help school teams appreciate what computer science is, what new courses involve, and how these count toward graduation and fit with the larger school program.
Over the summer, WeTeach_CS reached and passed the 300th CS certification milestone and is now on the path to helping 500 current Texas teachers become CS certified. To celebrate, instead of throwing a party, we’ve extended the Certification Incentive Program (CIP) to cover all of the TExES CS 8-12 testing windows scheduled through August 2018.
