We utilize all sorts of different avenues to teach students how to code; especially when we first see the students in 6th grade. We don't know where or what they have started within the "code" world. Checkout our resources here: http://draggo.com/cluster/pZehrqqrnQ==

Setting up Classroom was incredibly straightforward using the resources below which were available for students to engage with from the moment they accessed Classroom.
