Re: [school-discuss] programming for junior high

I like the rhinoceros (http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/jscript4/) book.  I've
had great success teaching JavaScript to kids in that age group.  The
structure of the language is simple enough that they can get their hands
around it and they love the idea of creating their own website - especially
one with dynamic content.
