Salt Lake City, UT, October 21, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- CodeHS, a comprehensive teaching platform for computer science, announced their 2019 CSforALL Commitment at the CSforALL Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah this week. As a commitment maker, CodeHS is dedicated to making strides to bring computer science to ALL and support these efforts at a national level.
CodeHS’ 2019 CSforAll Commitment: CodeHS will build custom computer science courses aligned to computer science state standards and courses across over 20 states by the start of the 2020 school year to benefit over 50,000 teachers.
Each state has a varied set of computer science standards and courses that teachers must teach, which creates lots of additional curriculum prep for teachers. By creating courses that align to state standards and course pathways, teachers can easily use the CodeHS curriculum knowing it covers the requirements in their state and spend more time focusing on what really matters—their students.
“Teachers often have to piece together different curricular resources to ensure standards coverage, but this can be challenging and intimidating when teachers are new to computer science. We want to provide teachers with a cohesive standards-aligned curriculum, so they can focus on all of the other aspects of teaching students computer science,” says Evelyn Hunter, Curriculum Lead at CodeHS.
