Curriculum Unit (pdf)


It is a common myth that computer programmers lack communication skills. This curriculum unit is designed to “bust the myth” by allowing students to develop crucial communication skills through a student-led project. Students will propose a project that piques their interest, write a project proposal, and seek feedback from their peers and other members of their community. Finally, as a culminating assignment, students will present their progress and work on their project though a short presentation and short, 750 word paper.
