  • Joon Kim says, “ I used to be one of those teachers who did projects that come out of the book, like banking accounts.. they weren’t relevant to 14-18 year olds.”
  • Over the years Kim tried to find more things his students would be interested in so that they’ll want to find the answer to a problem while practicing their skills.
  • Kim’s “Number one tip for a high school teacher” is to come up with exercises your students can relate to. High-schoolers are interested in their friends, sports, fashion, and music, the more exercises you can come up with that relate to their interests while still relating to programming skills, the more they’ll do the projects and homework.
