It has begun.

Today is the first full day of school.  We have 11 kids in Programming I and 8 kids in Advanced Programming.  In a school of 200 that does not seem too bad.  This year our Adv Prog is offered for college credit through the local University of Montana College of Technology.  A three credit course for $120 is a killer deal for the kids.  I have to use the CoT text, Visual Basic and somewhat follow their goals but the CoT directions were to teach the topics in any way I see fit.  We are rewriting our Programming I from scratch.  We are trying to wean ourselves from a strictly VB based coding course to a more language independent course with a much larger plan/design/code concept behind the course.  It should be an entertaining year.
