How Outschool Works

****This class is designed for BEGINNER level Scratch coders.**** My style of teaching is very patient, interactive, and engaging. Each student will be able to share and express themselves as they feel comfortable. Each lesson will leave them excited to create projects using the coding knowledge they acquired in class. This is a ‘Beginners’ game. These lessons will walk you through building a 'Guess My Number' game. In this game, you have 6 chances to guess a number between 1 and 100. ...
Develop programs with sequences and simple loops, to create a game. Identify and fix errors using a systematic process. Using correct terminology, describe steps taken, and choices made during the iterative process of program development.
Great teachers form strong relationships with their students by engaging them in the subjects they are passionate about. I have always been a logical thinker who enjoys science, math, technology, and engineering both for work and play. I worked as an engineer for companies like Frito-Lay, Anheuser-Busch, Amgen as a consultant for many years improving their systems with automation and equipment. Once I became a parent, I began teaching extra-curricular classes as a way to have more time at home, but stay involved in subjects that bring me joy. Realizing that by being warm, professional, and enthusiastic, I am able to engage students. My creative lessons and strong classroom presence help build student confidence while increasing interest in subjects that may otherwise seem intimidating.
Learners can continue to practice outside of the class. Homework is optional. Any unfinished classwork may be completed for homework. Children will be encouraged to explore coding on their own. Some weeks will have handouts, worksheets, and homework. This is not required but offered if you want to add more information on the topic of the week. I will occasionally assign some videos to watch to further their understanding of the topic. Videos will not be watched during class time.
It is strongly encouraged to have two devices. One device for Zoom (laptop, desktop computer, smartphone or tablet) and a second device for coding Scratch will run in most current web browsers on desktops, laptops, and tablets. Chrome browser is ideal. Internet Explorer is NOT supported. If you encounter a WebGL error, try a different browser. *****If using an iPad/tablet, a Bluetooth keyboard will be required for all the functions to work properly.****
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
