Workshop Stats/Rossman

Confession time:

I just read James F Bohan's sample curriculum in the draft version of
the "Teacher's Guide to the AP Course is Statistics." He is using Rossman's
"Workshop Statistics: Discovery with Data" as the primary text and Moore's,
"The Basic Practice of Statistics" as a secondary text. The curriculum is
very constructivist, spending the majority of its time doing Rossman's
activities (which I like).

This is what I was hoping this course would be like all along. However,
since I have never taught a full course in statitstics and Rossman's book is
not listed as a primary source in the AP Course Guide, I have not felt enough
support to go out on my own and try it.

Give me some honest feedback. Are there dangers here? Anybody else feel
like this is the way they want their course to be but needed some more

Thanks in advance,
