Code.org

This is one of the best, if not the best website for teaching and learning computer science – to some, the dreaded ‘coding’. It is easy, whether you’re teaching Kindergarten students or taking the courses yourself.

All courses are available at no cost. Teachers have support in learning and teaching computer science. Take a trip through the whole website. Start here https://code.org/

Courses are broken down into groups. Here are some:
K – 5 (Elementary School) For students new to computer science, each course begins with a grade-appropriate entry point and structured ramp-up of concepts. Take a look at the Curriculum Guide
Grades 6 – 10 (Middle School) The course takes a wide lens on computer science by covering topics such as programming, physical computing, HTML/CSS, and data.
High School For high schools, there two years of Computer Science courses for beginners. The first course, Computer Science Discoveries, is appropriate for grades 6-10 and the second, Computer Science Principles, can be implemented as an AP (Advanced Placement) course or an introductory course.

Code.org® is a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Their vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra.
