Hi again,

Is anyone on this list teaching Squeak *Smalltalk* to high school kids?

Sorry for not being more specific in my previous posting -- I did not  
realize that for many people, Squeak = eToys.

I realize the advantages of starting with eToys, but I will be dealing  
with a group of kids who have already seen some other programming  
languages.  I was wondering if anyone has experience with getting kids  
quickly started with some simple but interesting Smalltalk stuff.

Thanks in advance,
Oscar Nierstrasz
