Suzanne Smith, CS2 Workshop, statement
I will be teaching CS2 using an object-oriented language (C++) for the
first time this spring 1999. We are switching to object orientation and
C++ this fall in our CS1. I plan to cover basics of object orientation
and using existing classes in CS1. Therefore, I will need to cover, in
CS2, creating their own classes as well as the topics that I have
traditionally taught in CS2. These topics include abstract data types
and an introduction to software engineering.
I am concerned about how to cover all this material in one semester and
am, therefore, interested in what suggestions result from the discussion
in this workshop. I look forward to learning from the other participants
of this workshop who have experience using an object-oriented
language in CS2 and learning what works and what doesn't work.
