Rate Tips

Rotate students into different pairs during a single class period so they learn to explain and read code quickly.

  • Have one student stay at each station while the other students moves on to a new station.
    • Keep rotating students to the point where everyone is working on code that isn’t the code that they started with.
  • Another option is to move whole pairs at a time, this way students have to learn how to jump into code without a host to explain what was done.
  • This activity teaches students the importance of documenting throughout the development process and gives them experience reading and explaining code, whether it is their code or someone else’s.
