add link to Elizabeth Wickes lightning talk
== Texts for teaching and learning ==
*[https://osf.io/78fms/ Elizabeth Wickes gave a lightning talk at code4lib 2018 ] where she asked about programming textbooks for teaching LIS students that do not require trigonometry or advanced skills in specific knowledge domains. Texts that might be used as a model are No Starch Press books like “Learning from Scratch” and “Python for Kids”. Since they are written for children, they do not assume college- or even high school- level familiarity with particular knowledge domains. They are models of clarity.
*The book [http://www.openbookproject.net/thinkcs/python/english2e/ “How to Think Like a Computer Scientist”] uses Python, but focuses more broadly on thinking programmatically.
