For math, science, English language arts and social studies teachers, this book provides the guidance and tools to start integrating coding into classes to complement and strengthen existing instruction.

Access to high-quality computer science instruction has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. Thanks to this movement, more students start middle school with some foundational knowledge of computer science and coding. This new set of creative skills empowers students to express themselves in powerful ways, but students still need opportunities and support to develop and hone those skills. Creative Coding provides the resources teachers need to help their students do just that.

This book also includes:
  • Lessons and projects to help students apply computational thinking and coding skills in core academic classes.
  • Examples from classroom teachers in different content areas to support student learning.

This book helps classroom teachers in several core content areas develop activities and projects to encourage computational thinking and coding skills, and to build bridges between those skills and practice.
