WeTeach_CS for HS - Student Preview (21-22)
Whether you are a beginning computer science teacher or an experienced veteran, WeTeach_CS for HS provides all the instruction, materials, and support you need to teach a first year computer science course.
Each module is structured around objectives that provide context and relevance for you and your students. Highlighted throughout the curriculum, Big Ideas can assist in assembling a big picture across the course.
From A to Java
We provide a suggested sequence to guide new CS teachers through the year, progressing from Scratch through Jeroo to Java - and our modules are flexible enough for experienced teachers to modify them for their classroom.
Amazing Content, Amazingly Simple
Organized into modules for each of the programming platforms, our lesson plans are structured to optimize your teaching time and use all of the resources provided in the curriculum from labs to videos.
Build From What You Learn
Our goal is "Coding from Day One" because we believe in hands on learning. Every lab and activity is an opportunity for your students to gain confidence and experience by applying what they’ve learned and receiving immediate feedback.

WeTeach_CS curriculum packages have the option of using Student Accounts through Canvas at a minimal cost of $5 per student per year. Students individually log in using a safe and protected UT EID (Electronic ID) and experience the curriculum from their own smartphones, tablets, or laptops, providing access to the curriculum through the Canvas LMS, with videos safely posted on Vimeo. Interactive online lessons are delivered using RISE, a state-of-the-art industry standard E-Learning platform. All student login data is held in strictest privacy and security, not used for any other purposes, and at the end of each year is purged from the Canvas course. For more details, please email the course developer, John Owen, at email@example.com.
Seeing is believing
Our Instructional Videos can be used by both you and your students to review and build on your understanding of the topics in each lesson. Solution Videos clearly show everyone what is expected when a programming solution is complete.
