The "Computer Science Field Guide" is a online resource for teaching Computer Science to students. This guide is being developed as an online interactive textbook to support the new achievement standards in Computer Science that are being rolled out in New Zealand from 2011 to 2013. Eventually it will expand to support other curricula, but the initial focus is to meet the urgent need of resources in NZ.

The Introduction chapter is good place to start to find out the goals of the site. The chapters are in various stages of development, but the chapter on graphics is a good example of a fairly complete version, and the formal languages chapter is a good example of how we're taken advanced concepts and packaged them for high school students.
