Lesson Plans for Computer Science

I believe that students learn best while having fun and being entertained so in my lessons there's always something fun built in, something more fun promised after more tedious tasks. But I feel that if a student is not having fun then something is really wrong or you need to find a way to tie your lesson in for that student.

More often than not educators will not need to "reinvent the wheel": people have done a lot of work putting together resources to teach computing, so whenever possible use them (giving credit where credit is due, of course!) Generally it's good practice to modify lessons to meet your needs also.
