Leslie, great to meet another like you! I started out in 1976, punch- 
card queues as you would remember. Always preferred Pascal to  
Fortran, though. ;)

I've also taught computing to adults and young adults in our version  
of a community college, so I do understand where you're coming from,  
and I applaud your attitude and teaching approach.

Wish I could look over your outline, but I'm too sick now to be of  
any use there. However, your approach is sound: getting them to do  
things, talk about them, question them and demonstrate what they do  
understand is always the best way if you have enough teacher time per  

It would also be good if you could use as much free software as  
possible in your course, e.g. using OpenOffice instead of M$ for your  
own docs. Leading by example. ;)
