GCSE – Lesson 42 – Being a programmer

Curriculum KS4 Unit Lesson

This lesson has been designed to round up the learning from this unit. It is the last lesson of new content before they take on their final projects. Learners will discuss the good habits of a programmer before being reminded of why some of the key aspects are good habits. Learners will also hear from industry programmers about their own good practice.

Learners are then shown alternative approaches to programming solutions. This unit has consistently used specific approaches to help them learn different skills. They are now experienced enough to be able to see the other approaches and try them for themselves in their own programs.

Finally learners will be shown how to append to a CSV file, before completing a challenge using their CSV skills and the alternative approaches learnt in today's lesson.
