Educate Maine and Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance are excited to announce that applications for Code.org’s Professional Learning Program are now open. If your school is looking to offer Code.org’s computer science (CS) courses at the middle or high school level in 2021-22, please encourage interested teachers to apply today.
Code.org’s Professional Learning Program is an intensive, year-long professional learning program for middle and high school educators who are interested in teaching Code.org’s CS Discoveries (middle school) or CS Principles (high school) courses. These programs are designed to prepare educators to provide high quality CS instruction with engaging curriculum and tools to students in their classrooms.
Teachers who apply and are accepted to the program commit to:
- Attending a four-day, virtual local summer workshop (August 9-13, 2021)
- Attending four local one-day, in-person or virtual workshops between October and April (Saturdays)
- Teaching the course during the 2021-22 school year
- Supporting the recruitment and enrollment of a diverse group of students in the course, representative of the school’s overall student population
Applications opened on January 4 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. For more information and to apply, visit the Professional Learning page for CS Discoveries or CS Principles.
