My purpose here is to share (and organize!) my journey how I am learning about coding and computer science. I will dig into the why and how I am incorporating it into my teaching of secondary ELs. I hope these stories encourage other EL teachers to do the same.
I have limited computer science background, which has me learning alongside my students. As a learner as well, I have learned how to collaborate with my students: “Let’s give this a try. Let’s figure this out together. What do you think?” I begin with teaching pre-teaching this language of collaboration, which all need from newcomer to LTEL. So. Let’s give this a try. Let’s figure this out together. What do you think?
