Sub Goal Labeling in Computer Science

One of the interesting ideas in teaching computer science I have been looking at is sub-goal labeling. I’m experimenting with it but to be honest I don’t feel near ready to share what I am doing.

As a wrote recently (The Problem With CS Education Research ) it can be hard for teachers to take research and adopt it because, well, research papers can be hard to read for some of us. And the world of the university classroom is a little different from that in the high school.

Fortunately for me, and for you, Clark Scholten has been trying things out and blogging about it. I highly recommend his posts.
Anyone have more suggestions of resources for learning how to use sub goal labeling?

Thanks for plug!

I am continuing to learn about subgoal labeling. My students seem to like it as a way to put their notes into steps that are easier to follow. Here is a link to the latest entry dealing with Arrays and the subgoal labeled notes
