Sensemaking routines for … Coding?! – Mike Deutsch
Some of your favorite math instructional routines also work beautifully for teaching coding! Just like in math class, they generate tons of talk and create space for seeing and thinking differently—a perfect entry into new coding concepts, skills, and project builds. In this interactive session you’ll get a first-hand taste of sensemaking routines that have been adapted for teaching early and middle-grade coding. No coding experience is assumed. Bring these routines back to your classroom (or a friend’s) and help make code truly accessible, just like math.
