Product Description

Coding is not the end goal... THINKING IS! This is a complete programming course for beginner programmers. It is also ideal for students who have programming experience but never used Turing before. It not only teaches kids how to code, but also to THINK! The twelve units are progressive, building on each other to the final culminating activity in unit 12. (Read the preview for more information.)

Turing is a programming language that was written with high schools in mind which makes it ideal as a first language. Its syntax is simple which means it is easy to understand. It also has an extensive GUI library so that students can use widgets such as colour, draw commands, buttons, sprites, and arrow keyboard control. It supports bmp/jpg and wav/mp3 files so students can create highly complex yet fun programs by the end of the course. If you have a mixture of kids in your class at varying coding levels this programming language is perfect! Kids who are familiar with another language will be at the same level as the kids who have never coded before.

Program design is an important part of programming - especially today. Most courses concentrate on coding and ignore this completely. Program design and paper planning have been built into this course. Students are required to have paper plans approved before using a computer. There are also several projects which incorporate differentiated instruction. Each student gets their own problem to solve which encourages transfer of knowledge as well as independent thinking. Units 6, 8, 10 and 12 also provide a wide variety of problems ranging from easy to extremely hard so the teacher can determine the most appropriate problem for each student.

This unit requires NO PREP!

The student handouts will require photocopying but that is all!

Each unit is complete and will include the following (where appropriate):

✔ A Unit Description
✔ Teacher notes
✔ Answer keys

This is ideal for classrooms where the seating is tight. There are three different versions of student handouts for these units. This includes the culminating activity! The versions would be given consecutively around the room so that students sitting together would each get something slightly different. This way students have different examples of the same exercise so they can work together to determine how something works. It also minimizes the amount of copying within the class.
