OLD LADY SWALLOWED A ROSE * Guided Coding Stories are all about combining stories and coding together in a strategic way so students can practice thinking like a computer (computational thinking) in a way that seems very familiar to them.

WHY CODE IN SPECIAL ED?
Coding with students is really just like sequencing. The vocabulary is a little different because we are using math and computer science terms instead of language terms.
For example, a coding sequence when put together, creates an algorithm that the computer understands as a program. In real life, a sequence is a set of instructions or steps that WE (instead of a computer) understand.
Basically, we are asking our students to be computational thinkers – to think like a computer.
Just like with the sequence of a story, if any of the steps are missing, the story is incomplete.
With coding, once the program is run, (the programmer presses start) the computer will go through the whole sequence (algorithm) without stopping. If there is a mistake (bug) in the algorithm then the end result will be wrong.
If a story sequence is missing one of the steps, then the end can’t happen the way it was meant to happen.
