Alice in Action with Java, an innovative new text by Joel Adams, provides CS1 students with a meaningful and motivating introduction to object-oriented programming. Using a spiral pedagogy, Adams introduces key object-oriented topics using Alice 2.0, then circles back to the same concepts in Java. Alice was developed to help teach introductory programming techniques in a less syntax-intensive environment, and addresses some of the barriers that currently prevent many students from successfully learning to program. By initially introducing basic concepts in Alice, students will have a positive first programming experience and a foundation on which to build when they revisit those concepts in Java.
