Connecting R.A.C.E. Writing Strategies to Computer Science Skills

A Talk by Jackie Weber (Computer Science Specialist, JWC Curriculum & Instruction Consultants)

About this Talk

When teachers faced with the demand of teaching the core content are asked to bring in STEAM too, it can seem overwhelming. Integration is the key. Bringing CS into writing lessons can help teachers with the "time to teach" concern while helping students understand that STEM skills apply to all of their subjects. This brief session will review the R.A.C.E. writing strategy and how introduce teachers to the ways that when teaching the steps of R.A.C.E. they are also teaching computer science skills aligned to the CSTA K-8 computer science standards. Participants will apply these connections to their upcoming lessons and leave with a PDF of a RACE to CS crosswalk poster for their classrooms.
