"A High School Teacher's Perspective on Computer Science Recruitment and Retention"

Seth Reichelson discusses how active recruiting, retention, and word of mouth have been wildly successful at Lake Brantley High, a non-magnet school in Florida where enrollment for AP Computer Science in 2011-2012 was 65 girls and 79 boys (*45% female*.) This recruiting success is amplified with both mastery teaching and projects that engage diverse students, practices that can be widely adopted for bringing more and diverse students into computing.
