Teaching and Evaluating Reflection: A CS10K Community-Wide Event


Reflective writing figures prominently in both ECS and CSP and can be an important component project-based pedgagogy. How to teach and assess reflective writing is particularly important to CSP teachers because students will need to write reflections as part of their performance tasks for the proposed AP assessment. However, few computer science teachers have experience teaching evaluating reflection writing, or, in fact, writing and presenting more generally. This event will give teachers and CS10K project staff an opportunity to learn from three international experts on reflection and writing. 

Joining the CS10K Community for this event will be: 

  • Helen Chen, Research Scientist, Stanford University 
  • Lesley Smith, Associate Professor of Integrative Studies, George Mason University 
  • Kathleen Blake Yancey, Kellogg W. Hunt Professor of English and Distinguished Research Professor, Florida State University 

The event has three components: 

  • During the week of December 6, 2013, the three experts will publish 10 minute videos and supporting resources to the CS10K Community site. 
  • On December 13, 2013 from 3:30-4:30 PM ET, the experts will participate in an online panel discussion with CS10K community members. Members unable to attend live will be able to submit questions beforehand, and a recording will be posted on the community website soon after the discussion. 
  • From December 14 through December 16, 2013, the experts will participate actively in an online threaded discussion on the CS10K Community site.
