BATEC and TechBoston are collaborating to offer Learn to Teach Java - a 4 day, hands on course that accommodates participants with different levels of familiarity with Java and OOPs concepts. We will study classes and objects, constructors and methods, interfaces, inheritance, and polymorphism, strings, arrays, arraylist and some topics specified in the AP Computer Science Exam. Emphasis will be on techniques for teaching Java in high school (role play, team projects, case studies, writing Java code, debugging exercises etc...). We will also do rubric base grading of an AP CS paper. ALL BPS Participants are expected to bring their L4L laptop to all classes. If you do not have a laptop, please contact the instructor so that we can make arrangements. Upon completion of the course, BPS participants who successfully complete the course will receive 2 in-service credits. They will also be eligible for the textbook, an exam prep book, Software installation and other resources. PodCasts and some of the curriculum materials will be posted on the course website.

Location: Bunker Hill Community College D121A
