Webinar: Teaching the Create Performance Task in a CSP Classroom

CS for All Teachers continued our AP CS Principles webinar series by offering the next webinar in the series on December 8. During this session, we discussed the CSP Create Performance Task requirements and ways to implement the task in the classroom. Since CSP aims to be language agnostic, this was an interesting webinar as we shared strategies for helping students to be successful. Webinar host Deepa Muralidhar was joined by Brook Osborne of Code.org and Pam McClendon, a CSP teacher from Alabama. To view a recording of this webinar, click here.
