ira, if you are teaching 6-8 grade you probably want to at least request a desk-copy of Alice In Action. Pre-AP I would suggest the Learning to Program with Alice, and if school funding supports it, Charles Herbert's book although I found it rather weak and dis-jointed.

In January look for Adams' new book to be released which integrates Alice into a high school Java curriculum. There is also, the yet to be released, Shelly-Cashman book.

With all that said, EA will probably release Alice 3.0 before the 2007-2008 year and all these books will be obsolete!

Good luck,
