Undergraduates Teach Game Programming Using Scratch. Peter Gruenbaum, SDK Bridge. IEEE Computer. 2014. PDF of Article

focuses on the experience of teaching undergraduate computer science students to teach programming, using Scratch, to middle school students.

This is definitely an interesting approach to help bridge the issues involved with teaching programming throughout the K-12 range. Computer science students benefit by learning how to communicate their problem solving skills. Moreover, the schools benefit by getting access to people with expertise in programming.
