I have some new additions to the curriculum this year that I am very excited about! Over the summer I took a basic computer programming course for educators. The course focuses on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology developed software called Scratch. To put it simply, Scratch is AWESOME and I cannot wait to share it with my students this year. My goal is for my 7th and 8th grade students to be able to create their own computer games by the end of their time in my class! Computer programming is a tool that will help students in all of their classes, not just technology based. The problem solving and critical thinking that it takes to create a computer program is paramount to student development! To top everything off, Scratch is FUN!
In addition to Scratch, students will be presented with some of my overall favorite subjects from last year, such as website development and video editing! I look forward to growing and learning with my students this year!
