Book Review: "Learn to Program with Small Basic" - from Middle and Senior School Teacher in Australia, Susan Nicholson
We're proud to get some great feedback from an experienced schoolteacher! The guest author of this blog post is Susan Nicholson.
Susan Nicholson is a Business and Computing Teacher at Ellenbrook Secondary College in Ellenbrook, West Australia. She teaches grades 7-12 on computer science and robotics.
In teaching computer programming fundamentals to Middle and Senior School students, I feel the examples and exercises given in “Learn to Program with Small Basic” provide a fun and informative way of delivering the concepts.
Examples of games, relating to science and maths enables students to apply real world scenarios to their programming and make it realistic. I found the book easy to read and follow; the examples are clear and well explained.
The use of colour coding and visuals enables students to easily follow on and gives them the confidence to try themselves.
