Students learn the importance of detailed directions


Students in Mr. Thacker’s Exploring Computer Science class learned the importance of detailed directions by writing the directions to make a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

After the directions were written the students took turns following the directions exactly as written--even if it meant spreading the peanut butter and jelly on the outside of the bag of bread.

Some worked well, other did not. The students now have a better understanding of detailed directions in everyday life, as well as when dealing with computer science.
