   Computer Science

Computer Science is a rich and diverse discipline. Graduates of the computer science program are well prepared for advanced studies and for problem-solving across the breadth of the discipline.
Required to observe local high-school computer science classrooms during the course of the semester. The schedule will be finalized with each individual student to avoid scheduling conflicts.
Develop constructivist, authentic activities to engage students to learn computer science; create a supportive and active learning environment.
Develop various types of assessments (e.g., formative and summative, authentic, and performance assessments) and corresponding rubrics to evaluate student learning.
Establish a bank of resources for teaching computer science in high school, including possible materials, lab assignments, class activities, and websites.
