CSTA Chapter News
Our March Chapter Meeting was a PD led by Colleen Lewis, who had been one of our IE chapter leaders, but was enticed away by U of Illinois, Urbana Champaign. Colleen shared teaching methods to help students see the underlying structures of CS problems. In this PD she used Scratch to explore common patterns of iteration.

Our January Chapter Meeting topic was 'Formative Assessments.' We talked about the ways we can provide formative feedback to our students, with particular attention to how we can provide meaningful feedback when we are all online due to Covid-19.
