Teaching programming with Haskell

Introduction

I'm planning on developing some resources using Haskell to teach programming to high school students as part of an education course at the University of Tasmania next semester. I'll document what I do here and, when there is some content, move it into the wiki proper.

Plans

As "constructive," "learner oriented," and similar buzz words are all the rage at the moment, I'm currently planning on developing resources suitable for project classes allowing students to learn programming through an application that is of interest to them. My current plans centre on creating resources using some of the more interesting applications of Haskell described in The Fun of Programming (listed on Books). At the moment that means: Haskore, Pan, one of the DB libraries, and a more traditional CS project, but I'm sure the list will expand.
