Implement 4 Impact (for second-year participants)

Integrating college-and career-readiness (CCR) into computer science (CS) instruction increases its relevance for students, their families and school counselors. CS pathways are strengthened by partnerships with local colleges and businesses.

CS4NorCal’s second year of professional learning for teachers of grades 6-12 offers a unique series of 4 workshops to provide teachers with tools to integrate CCR and CS instruction. Teachers will be able to increase the impact of their CS implementation with such strategies as project-based learning, project management, authentic assessment and curation of student work.  These instructional strategies are relevant to any subject area. Employers from California's Far North are looking to hire new employees who are able to manage projects in collaboration with team members utilizing tools like Agile, which CS4NorCal teachers will learn through Implement for Impact. 

For all teachers and counselors
