Not so, says author Sarah Kepple. In this accessible guide, she explains why you don't have to be an expert to lead coding, shows how easy and rewarding learning and teaching coding can be, and provides step-by-step instructions to help you and your community get started.\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe book shows how to engage students quickly with learning activities that springboard off of the powerful appeal of video games. The author takes users through activities that introduce popular programming languages—including C++, GameMaker, JavaScript, Python, and Scratch—to create video games, and in the process, to learn coding. These activities, themed around classic and popular stories, appeal to a broad age range—from elementary-age youth through high school and beyond to adults and seniors. Readers will see why school and public libraries are venues ideally suited for coding classes, workshops, clubs, or camps, and they will understand why teaching coding not only meets an important need but also serves to highlight the library's relevance to its community.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\"

Not so, says author Sarah Kepple. In this accessible guide, she explains why you don't have to be an expert to lead coding, shows how easy and rewarding learning and teaching coding can be, and provides step-by-step instructions to help you and your community get started.\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe book shows how to engage students quickly with learning activities that springboard off of the powerful appeal of video games. The author takes users through activities that introduce popular programming languages—including C++, GameMaker, JavaScript, Python, and Scratch—to create video games, and in the process, to learn coding. These activities, themed around classic and popular stories, appeal to a broad age range—from elementary-age youth through high school and beyond to adults and seniors. Readers will see why school and public libraries are venues ideally suited for coding classes, workshops, clubs, or camps, and they will understand why teaching coding not only meets an important need but also serves to highlight the library's relevance to its community.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\" class=\"prod-features-h3\"\u003eFeatures\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eHelps librarians—even those without prior experience and training—launch highly successful programs in computer coding that engage both traditional literacy and technology literacy\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eBuilds on the library's role as technology hub in the school and\/or community\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eEnables librarians to cultivate practical and valued skills among students and patrons—all while they have fun learning\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOffers insight from an instructor who leads coding clubs and classes in multiple libraries\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e"}

Many of the doodads can be created as family do-it-yourself projects, and some can be adapted to work with non-readers of any age. Instruments can also be a great way to get children's attention and teach literacy skills, whether it's a drum to beat while reading a story or a maraca for children to shake during a song, and lesson plans for musical storytimes address how to use rhythm, singing, and dancing to make early literacy fun.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\" class=\"prod-features-h3\"\u003eFeatures\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eTeaches librarians how to use storytimes to build literacy skills in pre-readers of all ages\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOutlines all of the steps necessary to carry out pre-literacy storytimes, displays, and outreach activities with photos, examples, and instructions for librarians and families\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOffers ideas for using inexpensive \"doodads,\" especially those including letters of the alphabet, to build literacy skills\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eDetails how the musical and nonmusical can add musical elements to storytime to improve literacy\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eProvides tips for engaging caretakers in storytime so that children may continue learning at home\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e"}
