Once again, your team has managed to accomplish the Holy Grail of Edutainment. In my opinion as a 26-year veteran Middle School educator, there is no more engaging resource for teaching coding.
Core Computer Science Curriculum
We have developed our instructional model based on proven theories and extensive evidence around how students learn best.
At the start of every module, use our turnkey lesson slides to help your students make the connection between new Computer Science concepts and relevant examples from their daily lives.
Construct Own Meaning
Next, guide your students in constructing a deeper understanding of new concepts through unplugged and discussion activities that are built into our lesson plans.
Learn New Concepts
In the third stage of the learning cycle, your students will learn new concepts through expositional dialogue between characters in the Ozaria story. Voice-over, graphics, and animations make absorbing new information even more accessible and fun.
Apply New Knowledge
At the end of each chapter, your students will be challenged to showcase their new skills and express their creativity through summative projects in which they build their own games, stories, and more.
