Students will critically examine current education issues that affect their lives, their local community, and P-12 classrooms throughout the state and the country. Throughout this course we will examine achievement data (local, state and national) by gender, race, ethnicity, English language proficiency, and program type (gifted/ talented, special education, honors, Advanced Placement, etc.) and use this analysis to generate questions, offer solutions, and engage in critical dialogue about educational inequalities and educational justice. Ultimately, the purpose of this course is twofold: First, the course is designed to encourage high school students to consider teaching and related fields as a viable and important career choice. The course is also designed to provide students with “college knowledge”. That is, students will: a) gain an appreciation of the importance of academic success; b) be provided with supports and mentors to help achieve greater academic success; and c) gain an understanding of how to navigate the college and scholarship search and application process – including information for students who will be applying as international students. 10Practical Arts11th;#12th;#1 yearPractical ExperiencesN/ANohttp://contenthub.bvsd.org/curriculum/Course%20Catalog/Pathways2Teaching.docx

This course is equivalent to a non-CS Majors course at the College level. This is an introductory course for all students who can not only succeed in an AP Computer Science course, but attain credit for this course at universities and colleges. AP Computer Science Principles introduces students to the central ideas of computer science, instilling the ideas and practices of computational thinking and inviting students to understand how computing changes the world. This rigorous course promotes deep learning of computational content, develops computational thinking skills, and engages students in the creative aspects of the field. This course is unique in its focus on fostering students to be creative. Students are encouraged to apply creative processes when developing computational artifacts (computer programs) and to think creatively while using simulations to explore questions that interest them. Rather than teaching a particular programming language or tool, the course focuses on using technology and programming as a means to solve computational problems and create exciting and personally relevant artifacts. Students design and implement innovative solutions using an iterative process similar to what artists, writers, computer scientists, and engineers use to bring ideas to life.
