I have begun the second round of computer programming training for elementary and middle school aged boys. I am somewhat experimenting by making a few of changes. The first change is location. A good friend of mine recently opened a book store. He generously made his facility available to use for the class! The store’s focus is Black/Afrocentric books, gifts and art. It is a very uplifting, positive environment. The second change is format. My friend suggested changing the class format from structured lesson plan to that of a workshop. This way parents and perspective students can get a quick, hands on introduction. If they like, they can return the following week and learn more. Lastly, I changed the day from Saturday to Sunday. Let’s see how all this works! More later.
