 6.  Please comment on the Introduction section.
Comments: Good

Comments: I was already familiar with K-12 CS Framework, so it makes perfect sense. I am interested in what others think.

Comments: I appreciate the vision statement's focus on informed citizens and application of CS. Far too often the focus is on careers in CS rather than leisurely applications or discussions on informed citizens. There needs to be statements indicating the practices/concepts are from the K12 CS framework.

 8.  What would you like the working group to consider as they revise the Kindergarten Computer Science Standards?
Comments: why are there twice as many computer science standards as there were science or social studies standards? These are important but not MORE important than other core areas.

Comments: How are we going to prepare, train, and recruit teachers qualified to administer this content?

Comments: We have very limited access & time. Current tech standards integrate well, we don't need these in-depth KG standards . Students need to learn to type and enjoy using systems as they pertain to state testing processes to remove stress and errors that come from lack of tech use.

Comments: K.IC.SI.1 - as kindergarten students are just learning to read and write, I believe that many of the examples given are too advanced for many kindergarten students, such as blogging and providing others with feedback of their work

Comments: nothing at this time

Comments: With so much "teacher assistance," will it be difficult to create measurable learning objectives from these standards? Also, in the first sentence of the Introduction, shouldn't it read "... and WILL communicate...:

Comments: Kids can do more than "discuss," "explain," "recognize," "identify," etc. I'd recommend looking at the verb usage and think through what this actually looks like. Many of the standards are low level thinking without any application. Also, "using accurately terminology" should be implied throughout.

Comments: why are there twice as many computer science standards as there were science or social studies standards? These are important but not MORE important than other core areas

Comments: How are we going to prepare, train, and recruit teachers qualified to administer this content?

Comments: none at this time

Comments: Again, kids should be creating and doing, not explaining. I'd recommend finding actionable things kids can do in a class and using them as examples rather than only describing why the standard is important.

 12.  What would you like the working group to consider as they revise the Second Grade Computer Science Standards?
Comments: why are there twice as many computer science standards as there were science or social studies standards? These are important but not MORE important than other core areas

Comments: How are we going to prepare, train, and recruit teachers qualified to administer this content?

Comments: none at this time

Comments: At this point kids are being asked to actually create something with code; however, I would encourage making that a standard in the previous grades. I appreciate the progression, but the standards in K/1 don't encourage creative expressions.

 14.  What would you like the working group to consider as they revise the Third Grade Computer Science Standards?
Comments: why are there twice as many computer science standards as there were science or social studies standards? These are important but not MORE important than other core areas

Comments: How are we going to prepare, train, and recruit teachers qualified to administer this content?

Comments: none at this time

Comments: The "present data visually" throughout the standards is too narrow. For example, using Sonic Pi (Ruby), we can present data sonically (sonification) with only five lines of code: initialize an array, begin loop, play element in array as a note, wait, end loop. Simply removing "visually" fixes this.

Comments: How are we going to prepare, train, and recruit teachers qualified to administer this content?

Comments: 4.DA.S.1 - seems very challenging as different operating systems may use different file types

Comments: none at this time

Comments: Remove the ; in the second sentence of the introductory paragraph

Comments: Kids at this age can do more than recognizing file extensions. Why not reframe it so kids justify file extensions used in a program? For example, using different media files changes the quality of the product, but also makes it easier/harder to store the file when memory is an issue.
