Computer Science Education Week is December 5-11, 2016. Feel empowered to teach coding in your classroom or library—even if you have never done so before—with these nine easy steps. You can download DK's brand-new guide which elaborates on these tips, includes additional easily accessible resources, and will help you track students' progress with badges and certificates of completion. You’ll be a confident coding instructor in no time.
1. Do not feel you have to be an expert.
2. You should work through any project(s) that will be provided to students first.
3. Never be afraid to respond with "I don't know."
4. Be open to allowing students to work on different projects.
5. Consider letting students work in groups of two or three.
6. Instead of a solution, consider providing the final working coding project for comparison.
7. If some students have completed a project but others are having trouble, know that 90% of the battle is complete.
8. If the students weren't successful with a project but you were, walk through it with them step by step.
9. If you are unable to get a working solution to a project, find the correct solution or create an alternative project.
