You might take a look at Balme & Lawall, _Athenaze: An Introduction
to Classical Greek_ (Oxford University Press, 1990). Yes, it is
classical, but I count that as an advantage. The reason I call it to
you attention is that Balme teaches at Harrow School in England, and
the original book was tested and developed in a number of high schools
as well as colleges. It uses an inductive approach, which you may
wish to supplement with handouts. It doubles as a nice introduction
to classical Athenian culture. And most of the vocabulary is useful
for NT readers, assuming some or most of your students will have that
