Grades 9-12

Learn how you can integrate cybersecurity into your AP Computer Science Principles course! The NCyTE center has developed a new AP CSP-Cyber course, available online in April. The new course integrates 13 cybersecurity concept lessons into the AP CSP course and aligns with the current AP framework. The course is currently under review by the College Board and will have completed the approval process in March 2021.

The 13 lessons are also available in standalone format at NCyTE.net. High School instructors experienced at teaching AP CSP developed the lessons. Each distinctive lesson contains a presentation, activities, learning objectives, and an overview document, which you can download for use in the classroom at no cost.

Lesson Titles:

  1. Information Security & the CIA Triad
  2. Personal Data Vulnerabilities
  3. Identity, Authentication, & Authorization
  4. Steganography
  5. Input Validation & Controls
  6. Vigenère Cipher
  7. The Iterative Process
  8. Risk
  9. Cyber Ethics
  10. Caesar Cipher

    Hello Everyone,

    Thank you for viewing our showcase on the new AP CSP: Cybersecurity Course, endorsed by the College Board and now available through CodeHS. This course allows cybersecurity topics to be introduced as part of a standard AP CSP course. NCyTE has also developed stand alone cybersecurity lessons that can be used in any computer classroom.

    These new AP CSP Cybersecurity course / lessons explore cybersecurity applications in Javascript, but CodeHS is also developing a Python version of the lessons which will be available later this summer as an additional resource for teachers.

    Your new AP course appears to be a powerful on-ramp for students looking specifically at careers in cybersecurity, but also, I would think that a cybersecurity background would be important for anyone in a CS field.  What are the ways that have helped you connect with CS HS teachers to build the bridges between HS and college experiences?

    Hi Nathan,

    Yes the AP course is a great on-ramp for students pursuing careers in cybersecurity, Information Technology, and or computer science. It is also great for cybersecurity awareness in other careers. The ways NCyTE has connected with CS HS teachers are presenting at conferences focused on K-12, NICE K-12 Conference for example, here is the link:https://www.k12cybersecurityconference.org/

    We also connect through NCyTE members, resources, and CodeHS Career Development workshops, here is link on NCyTE website:https://www.ncyte.net/resources/cybersecurity-c...

    Hope this answered your questions.

    Great to see cybersecurity as a CSP course. I was wondering what kinds of professional development and support do you provide for teachers? Is there a cost for schools to offer the course?

    Aman,

    To answer your cost to schools question. No, the course is free to teachers, once they sign up for a free teacher account on CodeHS (see https://codehs.com/signup/begin). Some schools pay to get Pro accounts, which come with some nice extras, but a free teacher account is all you need to do everything in our course.

    Aman, NCyTE Center has also funded two free four-hour professional development workshops for high school teachers to learn more about teaching the AP CSP Cybersecurity course and lessons: one on Wednesday June 9 and another on Thursday June 24.  You can learn more about them at

    Good to see cybersecurity as a CSP course. While some schools may offer curriculum in technology, cybersecurity isn’t typically covered. The cybersecurity field encompasses many different jobs that require varying skillsets.

    David,

    A good resource for cybersecurity work roles in the NIST NICE Framework. Here is a link to the framework and also a tool that looks at the work roles and pathways.

    And such a timely topic to be boosted in curriculum nationwide.  NCyTE has also developed interdisciplinary content via YouTube to help educators address cybersecurity both at basic levels of day-to-day computer use to risk applied to other fields.  New topics include Securing your Digital Life and cybersecurity threats in maritime, national airspace, small unmanned aerial system (UAS or drone) and supply chain risk management.
