Atlanta Classical currently offers high school students a one-semester class, Introduction to Computer Science, roughly based on the AP Computer Science Principals curriculum. It covers how computers represent data, how algorithms are used to solve problems, an introduction to networking and encryption, and dives into discussions on digital privacy and social media. The semester finishes with a brief programming unit based on code.org's AppLab (JavaScript). As Beginning Programming would be a new class for Atlanta Classical, the candidate will build a curriculum and lesson plan during Fall 2017. The new class will be designed as a continuation of the Introduction class. Beginning Programming should start with beginner-friendly tools to try out programming concepts, leading into relevant languages used in colleges and tech companies today. Fundamental programming techniques should covered, including data types, variables, functions, loops and conditional logic. Object-oriented programming in Java will be introduced. Students who complete Beginning Programming should be well prepared to take AP Computer Science during their senior year.
