What Teacher Resources Are Available?

Teachers, have no fear: we've got you covered. All our courses come with a wealth of teacher resources such as a Teacher's Guide, Lesson Plans, and Mission Solutions. There's also the Help Widget and the Knowledge Base itself, full of articles about blocks, sensors, code snippets, class and student management, as well as troubleshooting and technical support.

Start with the Teacher's Guide

The Teacher's Guide should always be your starting point. This resource will help you plan out your sessions throughout the course and prepare for a session before class. The guide contains information about the corresponding teacher's presentation/s for each session, speaker notes, links to useful Knowledge Base articles or video tutorials, pacing guidelines, tips, activities and class conclusion questions for students to help cement knowledge learned during a session.  

The Teacher's Guide for each course is available by clicking the link on a course's card and opens as a PDF document you can view in a browser or download to your computer.

Integrated Lesson Plans

Some courses include integrated lesson plans which are placed within a pack before the relevant missions. These lesson plans are split into several parts so as not to be overwhelming.

These lesson plans are our suggested method of introducing a mission and its objectives with your students. They include explanations of mathematical and scientific concepts or of coding practices, breakdowns of mission scenes and suggestions for how to map out a mission, useful tools, new blocks, examples of code snippets, GIFs, and interactive quizzes you can solve with your class.

Mission Solutions

Teacher accounts have access to mission solutions which load a complete solution code. Keep in mind that our solution is not the only one - there can be many ways to solve a mission. Encourage your students to try out different techniques.

Here's how to open a solution from a teacher account:

The Help Widget

The Help Widget is a useful little tool which can help you (and your students!) with a quick-search feature connected directly to our Knowledge Base. Simply type in a word or two and hit 'Enter', and the widget will offer a selection of relevant articles in the small window at the corner of the screen. You can read the article directly there in the CoderZ platform, or click the 'View Article' icon mceclip0.png to open the article in a new tab on your browser:
