The following resources were made possible through support from a National Science Foundation project (1441045) - award link.
Resources are available from an NSF-sponsored multi-year effort that infused cooperative learning (CL) structures into AP CS Principles classrooms to improve class participation and student learning. CL structures have been beneficial for both new and experienced teachers and across the curricula of the endorsed providers. Since AP CSP was designed to engage all learners, the CL structures used in our PD workshops and the CL resources designed by participating teachers in our project have the potential to positively impact all AP CSP classrooms.
The following are resources available from the project:
- Videos of Lesson Plans Developed by Teachers: 2018 Cooperative Learning Workshop at CSTA - 11 example lessons (July 2018)
- Workbook of Lesson Plans Developed by Teachers: Cooperative Learning and AP CSP (186 pages)
- CSforAll Teachers Webinar: Cooperative Learning Practices + Student Engagement in the CS Classroom (April 25, 2019)
- 2019 NSF STEM Showcase Video (May 2019)
