Your First Year Teaching Computer Science is a comprehensive guide to teaching computer science geared to new instructors in the field. It can be used as a guide and a reference, and it provides multiple examples of how to construct teaching materials, how to prepare lectures, how to write assignments, how to train TAs, and how to advise students, among many other topics. It is both motivational and instructive, and it provides a foundation on which to become a great CS instructor. Teaching computer science involves more than just “teaching the material,” and this book details all of the other parts of teaching that you will need to know to do the job.
