We have just released our annual survey to the over 1,500 instructors enrolled in our instructor's listing and many of you have already sent your replies! THANK YOU! This information helps us to see the paths that Alice has taken, the varied ways it is taught in schools and shows us some of the innovative ways Alice is being incorporated into your curriculum. For those of you on the list that have NOT already replied, please do so!
