At the beginning of the school year, I wrote about my school's plan to implement Bootstrap, a curriculum that integrates computer science and mathematics. We just finished our first attempt at Bootstrap at Sullins Academy and we’ve learned a few things along the way. Here are some of our observations:
Overall, we continue to be encouraged about the potential of Bootstrap and are working to give it the time it deserves next year. Have any of you done Bootstrap as part of your algebra curriculum? If so, how are you implementing it? If you’re running it exclusively through your algebra classroom, do you find that you have time to do it and meet your required standards? I would love to learn what’s working so we can productively continue our adventure!
