We are currently researching what curriculum to use/adapt for the 2019-2020 school year. It will be our first year offering AP CSA. The students taking the class will have had 3-7 years of computers science classes and plan to go into a computer science program.

Anyone have strong feelings on what AP CSA curriculum to use?

    $\begingroup$ Hi Allison, welcome to Computer Science Educators! Could you add in a bit of detail about what sorts of things were covered in those 3-7 years? That sounds like enough time to cover AP CS A and then some. Also, what are the ages of the students? Sophomores? Seniors? Freshmen? $\endgroup$ – Ben I. Jan 31 '19 at 1:34

    $\begingroup$ Are there some books/curricula you’re considering? Have you done some research already? More context will help yield some better answers. $\endgroup$ – Peter Jan 31 '19 at 18:53
  • $\begingroup$ Hi Ben, thank you for your response. The 3-7 years is a combination of working in Scratch, HTML/CSS, AppLab, and JavaScript. When they are Sophomores they take the AP CSP class. Depending on when students join our network, most students would enter the AP CSA class with the above content covered. Students would take the AP CSA class as juniors and seniors. $\endgroup$ – Allison Feb 11 '19 at 17:36
