Ready-to-Use Lesson Plans, Alignments, and Materials

Teachers are supported in their computer science journey with Skill Struck’s ready-to-use lesson plans. 

Each lesson plan includes CSTA standard alignments, helpful materials, and a clear lesson outline. 

These lesson plans can also include unplugged activities so your students can understand real-world applications of the coding concepts they’re learning. 

Self-Paced Curriculum, Autograder, Checkpoints, and Assessments

Students can guide themselves through Skill Struck’s curriculum with help from the built-in autograder. 

All of Skill Struck’s platforms include a textbook of CS curriculum that can be customized to fulfill your district’s chosen computer science pathway. As each student progresses through the curriculum, they will reach checkpoints and assessments that are auto-graded.

Teachers will have insight into their student's progress, including how far along they are in the course and how many checkpoints were attempted so they can support each student where they are struggling the most. 

Engaging K-5 Computer Science Curriculum

Skill Struck’s K-5 platforms include built-in curriculum that encourages your youngest learners to start their computer science pathway with block-coding or text-based coding. 

These platforms include speech-to-text features, and helpful videos so students as young as Kindergarten can begin learning coding concepts. 

Students are challenged to complete specific tasks and receive immediate feedback on their progress as they go through the curriculum. 

With Skill Struck your students will learn text-based coding earlier in their education through engaging coding games, unplugged activities, and more.
