Abstract:

"This book provides a step-by-step guide to teaching computing at secondary level. It offers an entire framework for planning and delivering the curriculum and shows you how to create a supportive environment for students in which all can enjoy computing. The focus throughout is on giving students the opportunity to think, program, build and create with confidence and imagination, transforming them from users to creators of technology. In each chapter, detailed research and teaching theory is combined with resources to aid the practitioner, including case studies, planning templates and schemes of work that can be easily adapted. The book is split into three key parts: planning, delivery, and leadership and management, and covers topics such as:curriculum and assessment designlesson planningcognitive science behind learningcomputing pedagogy and instructional principlesmastery learning in computinghow to develop students' computational thinkingsupporting students with special educational needs and disabilitiesencouraging more girls to study computingactions, habits and routines of effective computing teachersbehaviour management and developing a strong classroom culturehow to support and lead members of your team. Teaching Computing in Secondary Schools is essential reading for trainee and practising teachers, and will prove to be an invaluable resource in helping teaching professionals ensure that students acquire a wide range of computing skills which will support them in whatever career they choose."--Provided by publisher.
