I am so excited to share this curriculum with you. Scratch Encore is a collaboration between the University of Chicago and the Chicago Public Schools (CPS). It is providing an actionable and empirically-grounded answer to the question: Can we create advanced 4th-6th grade Computer Science (CS) instructional materials that give equal value to improving equity and student learning outcomes? This research practitioner partnership is designing, developing, and evaluating advanced Scratch-based CS instructional materials for upper elementary students through a process that attends to practical barriers to equity.
