The School Development Specialist will be part of a team working on a research-practitioner project that will design, develop, and evaluate advanced Scratch-based CS+ Math instructional materials for upper elementary students through a process that attends to practical barriers to equity. This process includes close collaboration between practitioners and researchers, discovering the outcomes of existing introductory experiences, involving diverse stakeholders in content design, and providing a learning path for teachers with varying degrees of experience. The accompanying professional development will be accessible to teachers with little prior CS experience. This will provide materials, increase teacher and student capacity in computing, and provide a blueprint for future equity-focused materials development to further fill in the computing education gap between elementary and high school.
