Walk students through the flow of information once you hit submit on a website to build fluency with web development.

  • There is a gap with translation high level comments and ideas, like pressing a submit button, to the code students will be writing.
  • Reinforcement of the relationship between high level ideas and lines and sequences of code is pivotal for learning web development.
  • When students don’t make these connections they’re prone to editing bugs at the low level (a particular line of code) when the issue could persist at a higher lever (in the way the request gets passed to the server) such that editing the high level interactions (modifying the template to send a different post request) may have been the better solution.
