What's included

2 videos2 readings1 discussion prompt

Instructions are the basic building blocks for programs. The sentences in our "essay", if you will (not a popular analogy for students - but true). Using CS Awesome, we'll learn some basic instructions in Java -- which focus more on storing and manipulating data (numbers and words) than we did in most block-based programming languages.

This week we'll go deeper and engage with some resources to support your teaching. You'll explore some questions to use in classroom analysis discussions (Peer Instruction), learn how these concepts are commonly assessed, and prepare to help students who are having trouble with CS Awesome assessments. Finally, you can check your own Unit 1 Java and Java Teacher mastery on our end of Unit 1 quizzes.

One of the key features of Java (as well as some other modern programming languages) is that it is "object-oriented" -- that we can design programs based around modeling of objects as a combination of data and methods (or actions) on that data. Using CS Awesome, we'll learn how to use already defined classes (classes are types of objects), to increase our power in solving problems in Java.
