Some additional info I turned up on the MIT site for this course:

If you don't like Scribd: http://mit.edu/6.01/mercurial/spring11/www/handouts/readings...

Think Python, How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/thinkpython.pdf

Whiteboard Demos [videos]: http://alawi.csail.mit.edu/~alawi/as3/

Alternately if you are really interested you can check the video lectures of many courses and subjects, some are old but hey basics are still the basics they never change :) http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-comput...

Different set of topics than I expected. More engineering focused. Not a negative, by any means, nut the ToC is worth a look tom determine whether this will address one's particular needs.

Technically, this class is intro to CS and EE; almost a third, if not more, is spent on EE subjects, and students should know python before this class. 6.00 is a class that specifically teaches CS and python.

With all the stuff on circuits, state machines, and probability, this course may be easy to sell EEs on teaching and taking.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
