Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the basics of java in order to create programs that use arrays and for each loops.
I have been teaching math, special education, and computer science for 14 years.  I hold teaching certifications in all three areas in both Pennsylvania and Maryland.  I teach java programming as an AP level high school course in my physical classroom. 
Students will be given small assignments within the class which are usually finished during the class.  The most effective way for the majority of students to learn how to program is by practicing.  Most of class time is spent by students typing their own code, with the teacher checking work and troubleshooting errors with students.  On larger projects students may need to spend time on their own completing the program.  
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There is no official assessment; however, students complete several tasks throughout the course.  
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students are expected to use repl.it and join my classroom in order to take this course.  Repl.it is student friendly.  I use this resource in my physical classrooms as well.  This does mean your student has access to code written by others, and any posts made by those users.  You may read more at repl.it if you need more information.  I will walk students through this process during the first session.
