Super necessary skills for our kids.

One of the most difficult skills for students to do well - this provides a nice framework to hang our evaluations on and ideas for how to work with the students as they practise these skills.

The concept of coding is very foreign to me, but the idea of analyzing, understanding, and creating is not.  Maybe that's where we are going with "coding" in education? At any rate, it's a thought to consider, what are you going to do if, in the near future, your administrator asks, "what are your students coding today?"
