C5 Cybersecurity Concept Lessons

Catalyzing Computing and Cybersecurity in Community Colleges (C5)These 13 cybersecurity concept lessons, along with lesson roadmaps and a planning and pacing guide, were created to integrate cybersecurity into the AP Computer Science Principles course (AP CSP). Each distinct lesson contains a presentation, activities, and an overview document that can be used in the classroom for free. These lessons have been developed by high school instructors experienced at teaching AP CSP.

The current versions of the lessons are now hosted on the CLARK cybersecurity curriculum library, under the course "Cybersecurity Concepts for AP Cybersecurity," instead of on the NCyTE website. Faculty and instructors must register for a free CLARK account to download teaching materials. 

Web-based versions of the lessons are available on CodeHS.com, where educators can access them with a free teacher account. All programming in the current CodeHS version is in JavaScript; a Python version will be released in Fall 2021.

High school teachers seeking a web-based curriculum that combines AP CSP and cybersecurity should consider the one-year introductory course AP CSP: Cybersecurity, accessible on the CodeHS platform.

National Science Foundation logoThe material in the Cybersecurity Concept Lessons is based upon work supported by the NCyTE Center and the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1548315, Catalyzing Computing and Cybersecurity in Community Colleges (C5).

C5 is a grant-funded project based at Whatcom Community College in Bellingham, WA. One of its goals is to develop and disseminate cybersecurity instructional materials to enhance computer science and cybersecurity courses and programs at educational institutions including community colleges, high schools and universities.
