Re: Can a non-programmer teach Perl?
in thread Can a non-programmer teach Perl?
If you're going to have groups (which is pretty well unavoidable if you've got more kids then computers, which from the sound of things, you will), I'd suggest making them yourself, and changing them. That way, even if you get one kid who always does all the work in his group, the /same/ kids won't keep getting a free ride (and less of a learning experince).
Of course, the teacher in question has taught a fair bit before, so should know this... right?
