Question: Are you going to offer online examples for some of the activities for the lessons? Many of the lessons in the beginning rely on in class activities. We may not be back in the classroom yet.
Jason Slowbe

And if there are different test versions, rotating answer choices, etc

Different way to incorporate
Kimberly Gustin
38:07
not and/or anymore
Chip Weber - Oakland, CA
39:02
Does the Create PT still focus on algorithms?
Chip Weber - Oakland, CA
39:13
The old prompt 2c?
kanderson
39:41
Does unit 10 include practice reading passages for the new ‘explore?’
Joel Legatt
39:46
Will there be some review incorporated with the pseudocode used in the AP examination because it’s so different than Javascript
Chris Pierce
39:50
Is the exam still entirely multiple choice?
Joel Legatt
40:00
just because it might be confusing to students due to the differing language
Alejandra
40:08
Are we going to have access to samples apps for the Create task?
Stacy
40:13
Will code.org have practice in unit 10 with the explore task content and how it is changing?
Kimberly Gustin
40:13
Are the lists going to start at position 0 in the AP Pseudocode now, instead of one?
Aaron Rogers
40:35
Good question Kimberly!
Chip Weber - Oakland, CA
40:43
Yay! Parent and child algorithms were so confusing for kids. Focus on input/output seems good
Tom Parslow
41:02
Is the curriculum finalized for next year and if not, what Units are for sure finalized (for us to being planning)?
Kimberly Gustin
41:16
They released them already
Rebekah Kim
42:19

43:38
Can you include each unit vocabulary list please
Hannah Walden
43:41
Thank you, Maureen!
Hannah Walden
44:09
Aaron - we have a bug with PDF generation that we are working on.
Aaron Rogers
44:29
great thanks.
Kimberly Gustin
44:32
The slides for each unit are super helpful, but when planning the first unit, there are things on the lesson plan, like informational items that are not on the slide, which makes it a bit tricky for set up. And the vocabulary is not at the top anymore for the lesson plan.
tammy
44:40
Will we be getting new reference books like we had last year from code.org
Hannah Walden
45:25
Kimberly - the slides are designed for you to make edits and customize them for your own classroom, so feel free to make a copy and add more information if you'd like!
Stacy
45:35
Do you have a pacing guide like this for block schedule?
Tom Parslow
45:38
Love that the lessons are now 45 min increments. Makes planning so much easier!
Amy Cox - Code.org
45:41
@tammy - The digital version of the Curriculum Guide is available at https://code.org/csp
Aaron Rogers
46:34

Kimberly Gustin
46:51
I was bummed about the battleship
Chip Weber - Oakland, CA

We've budgeted time in for assessments in this version.
Alejandra
48:05
Are there books for the students to read like Blown to Bits?
Lori Piazza
48:14
i love turtle programming. Does that mean that "robot questions" are not on the AP exam anymore?
Hannah Walden
48:40
Robot questions are still on the exam. We introduce these to students later on in the course.
Alejandra
49:16
How do you do that with remote teaching?
Linda Britton
49:43
Good question Alejandra
Hannah Walden
49:56
Great question! We will address in a bit.
Alejandra
50:49
Are students able to code at the same time in LabCode now?
Anita
50:59
We will have multiple webinar as we go through this academic year?
Rebekah Kim
51:25
Are there additional materials/projects during programming units for students who took CS A before CSP?
Ernie Lai
52:22

kanderson
53:08
Is there anything that can be cut or glossed over if we are short on time
Abigail Sheridan
53:17
Do you have a post AP exam unit?
Chip Weber - Oakland, CA
53:34
Related to Ernie and Abigail’s questions, should we also be aiming to finish Unit 10 before the AP exam?
Danielle Fair
53:55
Yay slides!!
Ian Ostrom
54:23
With the condensed format will there be extension opportunities/suggestions for more advance students?
Jody Bird
54:39

Amy Cox - Code.org
01:04:21
All of the resources Kaitie just went over are available on https://code.org/educate/csp-course-updates
Chip Weber - Oakland, CA
01:04:35
Is there collaboration between Code.org and Khan Academy? If so, what’s going on there?
Chris Pierce
01:04:48
To clarify, each lesson is now assumed to be approx. 45 minutes, i.e. one day?
Anita
01:04:53
Where are the slides located?
Hannah Walden
01:04:58
That is correct, Chris
Chris Pierce
01:05:09
Great, thanks!
Kimberly Gustin

Slides for each unit are on the lesson plans
Hannah Walden

Chris Pierce
01:05:43
Hannah - Did pilot teachers find themselves going past one day for many lessons? particular units?
Alejandra
01:06:13
Do students have to read a specific book like Blown to Bits?
Kaitie O'Bryan - Code.org
01:06:23
No book is needed for the course.
Amy Cox - Code.org
01:06:39
The forum can be accessed here: https://forum.code.org/csp

Are there many "optional" lessons as in the past?
Jody Bird
01:08:38
these updates sounds extremely helpful. thank you very much
Hannah Walden
01:08:44
We removed the optional lessons, Chris
Alejandra
01:09:00
Are students able to code together? In the same lab? At the same time?
Chris Pierce
01:09:02
"Optional" lessons were always relevant and beneficial, but sometimes hard to do bc of time constraints
