The Rice University School Mathematics Project (RUSMP), in collaboration with Code.org, is offering Professional Learning Programs for secondary computer science (CS) teachers in the Houston area during Summer 2018 and the 2018-19 academic year. There is no cost for either of these year-long professional development programs.
Below is a description of the two programs:
Computer Science Discoveries (CSD) is designed for middle school and early high school teachers who will be teaching middle school technology applications courses or the high school Fundamentals of Computer Science course. More information and a link for registration is available at: https://code.org/educate/professional-learning/cs-discoveries.
AP Computer Science Principles (CSP) is designed for teachers of the high school Advanced Placement Computer Science course. More information and a link for registration is available at: https://code.org/educate/professional-learning/cs-principles. CSP participants will also have the opportunity to participate in RUSMPâ€™s WeTeach_CS Collaborative and receive additional PD (including support for Computer Science certification), Â a $1600 stipend, and $500 materials for participation.
Participants in both programs will receive:
Teachers must commit to participating during both the summer and academic year. Principals must agree to allow enrolled teachers to teach the appropriate CS course during the 2018-19 school year.
