Book Description (Amazon): It’s an accepted fact that all students need exposure to certain academic disciplines—algebra, world history, chemistry, and probably a Shakespeare play or two. Unfortunately, computer science has not yet risen to must-have status. Given society’s reliance on technology in almost every aspect of modern life, author-educators Kevin Brookhouser and Ria Megnin find the lack of programming education in schools shocking. Code in Every Class explains why computer science is critical to your students’ future success and shows you how to take tech education into your own hands. And here’s the best news: You don’t have to be a computer genius to teach the basics of coding. You’ll learn…How to incorporate fundamental programming skills into your existing lessons—even if you don’t have computer coding experience. How to teach coding principles without a computer. Why computer literacy levels the playing field for underprivileged students. Too many students have never been shown how to take control of computers and other digital devices. They’re stuck as consumers, when they should be learning how to use tech tools to be creators and problem-solvers. Code in Every Class will allow you to open a world of opportunities to your students, one lesson at a time.
