dc.description.abstract This study examines computer programming courses offered in ten American states and nine Canadian provinces and compares them to the Computer Related Studies course offered in Nova Scotia high schools. A detailed look at contemporary literature reveals current trends in educational computing which are examined in light of present course offerings in Canada and the United States. Specific similarities and differences among the various programming courses are discussed, and specific recommendations are made for the future of secondary computer programming in Nova Scotia. Three tabular appendices (I,II and III) compare the states' and provinces' courses and a short glossary of computer terms is given in Appendix IV.
