To support the Program Manager for their Teacher Led Programs (“TLP”) in NYC, through which classroom teachers in under-resourced high schools are trained to deliver their Web Development curriculum so they can better teach their students the fundamentals of coding, a cutting-edge computer skill. In the TLP model, Code Nation provides ongoing, in-person training to classroom teachers who teach their Intro to Web Development curriculum. They provide classroom teachers with: a full curriculum including lesson plans, guided notes, activities, and homework; weekly check-ins with a Code Nation Program Manager; biweekly classroom observations; weekly volunteer support; and field trips to tech companies. A cohort of 6-8 volunteers will commit to coming to classes on a bimonthly basis. They will alternate so that there will be a volunteer in the classroom every week to provide feedback and guidance on technical projects, and to form personal relationships and a link to the tech industry. Code Nation equips students in under-resourced schools with the fundamental coding skills and professional experiences that together better create access to careers in technology.
