Computer Science Teaching at Rice University

In the spring and summer of 2017, I was fortunate enough to be one of the master teachers for the Computer Science Teaching at Rice University workshop for potential computer science teachers. Our two goals: prepare teachers to pass the Texas computer science certification exam and give training and resources for teaching inquiry-style computer science lessons. This page is meant to share resources I created so others can benefit as well. Many more items are available to participants through the course website. We partnered with WeTeach_CS to offer an online collaborative course for teachers as preparation for taking the certification exam
