Abstract : The Department of Computer Science located at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California recently decided to teach the new version of ADA 95 in their beginning programming class (CS 2972). The problem was two fold: (1) Teaching a newly altered language incorporating features from the old version into the new while retaining forward compatibility and (2) presenting object oriented design and programming features to students who have little or no programming experience. What evolved as the best method was to postpone the introduction of object-oriented design until the latter half of the class Highlights and differences of the languages would be presented during the course of the class with emphasis placed an old features that should be avoided that would make forward compatibility difficult. What resulted was a complete restructuring of the course.
