This is a collected list of readings that are relevant to the intersection of computer science with other fields, or relevant to those teaching about it.
- Why Choose Computer Science?
This is a set of 3 short videos explaining various aspects of computer science and the people who use it. These videos are short and classroom-ready; they are aimed at high-school students and are an effort to break down many of the false stereotypes surrounding computer science.
These are materials that are not necessarily directly related to CS4HS, but which might be interesting to those looking for additional resources.
Great Principles of Computing
Targeted at those with a non-trivial understanding of the field of computer science, Peter Denning's work is an attempt to place the study of computer science within the principled framework of a natural science. His breakdown of computer science emphasizes that computer science is about processes, not programming.
