Today I watched a student go from refusing to participate in an activity to actively engaging with a real smile on his face. We have been using this week to participate in the Hour of Code. Our librarian has put together a great webpage with multiple coding sites and resources that work for students at all coding levels. When the class came in to participate, this student refused to even sit down at a computer. He was finally coaxed into getting on the webpage where he made comments to the effect of "Why are we doing this?" and "This is stupid."
