Introduction to Computer Science
Get Ready to Teach Python is a robust, online professional development course that prepares
teachers to confidently lead Introduction to Computer Science, the first course in our blended
computer science curriculum. Participating teachers will build a foundational understanding of the
curriculum, create a strategy for their own implementation, prepare for the first day of school, and
continue their learning throughout the year.
With this asynchronous learning tool, teachers have the opportunity to learn and complete material
on their own time and at their own pace, using summer months or break periods. The training covers
content relevant to both new and experienced computer science teachers.
Topics will include how to:
code in Python and conceptualize course content
navigate and utilize Edhesive’s online course
pace course learning for themselves and students
differentiate teaching methods for varied learners
customize online modules for student success
manage a blended classroom with hands-on techniques
