Week 10 Teaching activities

To cap off this quarter, you’ll administer short teaching activities in sections of introductory classes.


You’ll work in your culminating experience groups.

Each slot will be roughly 25 minutes long, in a lecture section of CSC 101, 202, or 203 in week 10. Details about dates, times, and rooms are in the sign-up sheet (will be released soon).


You can choose from the following 203 topics:

Topics can be repeated as long as the same topic is not taught to the same group of students more than once. You don’t need to be limited to the topics above, but I list them because I have some ideas/materials for those topics, so it may help reduce your workload.

You’ll be assessed based on:


After your teaching activity, please reflect on the following questions and respond in Canvas. This is an individual submission.
