This event is by invitation only. You must have a registration key in order to register.
The PDE 7-12 Praxis Prep Pathway is designed to help educators prepare for the CS Praxis exam (5652). This pathway engages 7-12 educators in activities to develop Computer Science (CS) content area knowledge and skills via the online We_Teach CS program. As a result of the Pathway, LEAs will have an educator ready to take and pass the 7-12 CS certification exam and to offer a standards-aligned middle or high school CS course.
Educators engaging in the 7-12 Praxis Prep Pathway will be:
- Providing examples of how computing fosters innovation and collaboration in society
- Identifying obstacles of equal access to computing among different groups
- Using abstraction, pattern recognition, problem decomposition, and number base conversion to create and analyze algorithms
- Identifying and apply knowledge of programming control structures, standard operators, variables, correctness, extensibility, modifiability, and reusability in the creation and modification of computer programs
PA 7-12 educators who currently are or will soon be teaching a middle or high school level computer science course in an LEA and interested in taking the PA CS Praxis exam.
Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individuals who have special needs as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act and who need assistance at this event. Contact: Marci Davis, at 717-901-2251, or firstname.lastname@example.org
