Brenda Watkins▸ U2: Algorithms & Programming

Task 1 Go to Blocky games and select either Turtle or Maze challenge to complete
I didn't read the instructions carefully enough and I did the puzzle task first. I thought it was easy and YES I can do this. Re-read instructions and started the maze tasks. This really challenged my persistence to complete- I can imagine how some kids just switch off- I felt like that but pushed through. I could see me working on the tasks with the students and asking them to stop when many are not successful in a set time. I would ask students to suggest ways to solve difficulties- discussion feelings- refer to a growth mindset. I would ask those who could solve the programming- what patterns, connections- relationships they saw, had in task thathelped them be successful.
