Considering Curriculum Resources
- When selecting or developing curriculum these are considerations for Curriculum
- Provide a comprehensive view of computer science informed by the five core concepts and seven core practices of computer science as delineated in the framework.
- Be developmentally appropriate per the grade-band progressions in the framework and fit into a coherent K–12 experience.
- Integrate the concepts and practices into meaningful experiences for students, rather than solely focus on the concepts.
- Be designed from a “content-first” perspective, in which programming tools, equipment (e.g., robots), and even languages, are a vehicle for learning the concepts and practices, rather than becoming the focus themselves.
- Offer opportunities to create innovative technologies within socially relevant and culturally situated contexts.
