Why did you decide to use CS First in your classroom?
These days, students need to not only be literate, but also to be digitally literate–meaning able to use technology to access, evaluate, locate, communicate, create, and use information. For me, literacy includes coding. My district doesn't require students to learn coding, so I decided to integrate CS First into my Language Arts instruction. The Storytelling theme fit right into our curriculum–it lets students experiment with dialogue, setting, premise, characterization, and interactive storytelling using CS.
