I would say it is really hard to determine how to teach a language and rich as C++. There is so much to understand, and it takes a long while for the concepts behind subjects like OOD, and Design Patterns to be understood well enough. You have to start some place and not push so much information onto the student that they get lost. It is good to introduce concepts early, but it should not be expected that beginning programers will understand them. Maybe as the course proceeds there can be an aside on why it might be a good idea to use some concept to improve the design, but don't expect many of the students to adequately grasp the concepts initially. This is sort of like reproducing the one-room school house which actually is much more effective than the traditional training approach.
