Computer Education: Scope and Sequence (Grades K-12).
Anchorage Borough School District, AK.
A companion volume to "Scope and Sequence for Computer Education (Grades K-12)" (1984), this document outlines the goals and objectives of a school district program designed to assist students to learn to use computers and to develop positive attitudes, values, and motivation as appropriate for each individual's age, needs, and desires. After an introduction and statements of the program's philosophy and goals, a matrix format is used to outline the objectives for each grade from K to 6. The program and instructional objectives are coded to the curriculum areas of science, social studies, mathematics, and language arts; suggested software; and other resources. For grades 7 to 12, descriptions of individual courses include grade level(s), prerequisites, outlines, objectives, and type of instruction for each objective--introduction, expansion, or reinforcement. These courses are: (1) Introduction to Computers, grade 7, 4 to 9 weeks; (2) Introduction to Computer Programming, grades 7 to 8, 9 to 18 weeks; (3) Computer Fundamentals, grades 9 to 12, 1 semester; (4) Information Processing, grades 9 to 12, 1 semester; (5) BASIC 1, grades 9 to 12, 1 semester; (6) BASIC 2, grades 9 to 12, 1 semester; (7) PASCAL 1, grades 10 to 12, 1 semester; and (8) PASCAL 2, grades 10 to 12, 1 semester. The scope matrices for grades K to 12 that conclude the document correlate the objectives for each level with recommended texts, curriculum area/unit, suggested software, and other resources. (JB)
