Blend STEM into your daily teaching, integrate character development lessons, and teach students how to code all at the same time! While students are engaged in learning in fun and creative ways, they will explore their values and beliefs, learn to collaborate with healthy respectful behaviors, and gain problem-solving experience using technology. The computer coding skills are taught in the HTML format. Lessons are presented in a clear, step-by-step manner. Educators with no prior coding experience will feel at ease. Every lesson features a Boys Town social skill to practice, relating to respect of self and others. An executive function skill such as self-control or integrity is also emphasized in each assignment. By the time the 15 lessons are completed, students will have developed all the code necessary to launch their own websites.
The curriculum can be used in numerous settings, including classroom and advisement, enrichment, interventions, and character education programs. There are clear examples, tips, and screen shots for teachers to use, and the complete code is included to help answer questions or provide solutions for your students. There are three differentiated instruction ideas on how to use the coding instructions for other academic lessons and core subjects. Also available as a printed book which includes a CD with print-ready handouts and instructions. Downloadable eBook with 15 Activities
