For a general outline, redhat is a good start.

It all depends on the intended result: are the students taking the courses as
a mere introduction to unix or is this part of a certificate/degree program?
I'd tweak the content according to that criteria.

There are concepts that are alien in the mind of new unix user such as the
command line, text editors like vim, mounting filesystems and remote
connections in a way other than instant messaging.

This site has some nice visual exercises.

Do an eSearch (TM) on "introduction to unix linux" or other similar phrases.
