Frank Yee teaches a course at the Barnes and Noble University web site
<http://www.barnesandnobleuniversity.com/> called "Introduction to
Programming" that takes such an approach. Yee uses a form of high level
"pseudocode" in most of his examples.
BTW, I know I've mentioned this site before, and I just want to state that I
am not affiliated with them. I've just taken a few of the classes there
(and have usually learned something useful from each one of them).

I think a book that offers language-independent primers on programming
concepts (loops, conditionals, methods, classes, ect) would be a big help to
non-programmers wanting to take the plunge and try to learn a computer
language (would have helped me).
