I am planning to teach a class in Scheme at work this summer. I'll be using
_Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs_ and Indiana's version of
Scheme. The people in the class will mostly be experienced C programmers,
along with a scattering of technical writers (with some Pascal experience)
and ex-programmers-now-managers. I'm teaching the class to expose these
people to new styles of programming, styles that (I hope) are becoming
increasingly important. I'm not an experienced teacher, though I have
taught such a classlet before.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I ought to go about this? What
should I skim over? What should I concentrate on? Does the book contain
too much or too little to be covered in a summer, considering that the people
are experienced but also have full-time-or-more jobs? How should I
supplement the book, and with what? Thanks.
