To date, the curricula of the K-9 programming languages have become the main approach for developing computational thinking skills. Then, the process of the skill development has received little attention. Thereafter, the study investigated the impacts which gender made on the development. The study constructed gender-sensitive curricula and instruction of programming languages which was to develop computational thinking skills. The research participants were randomly selected two-class high school students among the second grade level in Taipei area. After the programming instruction, the students were interviewed and were assessed regarding their levels of computational thinking skills, and t-tests were conducted to examine whether gender played a significant role. It is expected that the research results and findings may help construct the curricula and instruction of the programming languages which meets the state of being gender-sensitive with evidence based, and the gender issue no longer can play a role in learning programming languages.
