How does a “Multi-Day” course work?
Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Using previously learned Python skills, students will develop an arcade-style game where the main character (Munch) will chase after food. Munch must stay on the screen or he loses a life, but he'll go faster every time he eats a piece of food! Lose 5 lives and it's GAME OVER! Each class is structured as follows: -Introduction/Review - some theory about Python that is needed for the class (for example, if-statements) -Apply theory to the graphical environment with a warm-up activity (for...
Students will combine previous coding skills into one major project Students will explore various components of game design (goals, challenge, easy-to-use interface, for example) Students will use external files, such as images and sound files proficiently
I have taught Computer Science to over a thousand students from K-12, most of whom are beginners, ages 10-16. Having worked through many iterations of similar courses in classrooms in Canada and overseas, I am aware of what students need to get a good foundation in Python. This course is the second of my Making Graphical Games in Python courses.
Students will have goals each week for the following week. The amount of homework will depend on the student's progress during the class time and their curiosity/interest in taking the game further. The teacher will be available to help with most homework as needed during the week (though I may tell a student to save a question for the following class).
Students need to use a laptop with full keyboard. Unfortunately, Chromebooks, tablets, or phones won't work for this class. Students will need to install Processing on their computers. A handout will be provided prior to each class.
Learner progress through the skills and game are assessed consistently each class through conversation with the teacher. If there are concerns about a student's progress, the teacher will contact parents directly.
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
