I have started on an outline for a programming methods course for teachers. I am designing the course to be as general as possible so it will be suitable for elementary or secondary teachers. This outline is based on my 10+ years of experience teach programming to middle school and high school students. Since I teach in Montana and programming teachers are not a dime-a-dozen in Montana there has not been a lot of teaching technique comparisons in my programming teaching career. As a result this outline is from a very narrow experience base. So please give comments/recommondations/objections.
The material is posted on my Skydrive account
Since I use Skydrive once in a blue moon I hope it is accessible.
At the moment the folder contains the primary file “Programming Methods Course” and 5 files of references. I will slowly expand both as I find more references and get more ideas. Most of the references are not my writing. I have tried to give credit to the authors when posted.
