If I have a chance to be a teacher like you, I want to be a coordinator not teach item like MPI code or ... ...  
I mean in the internet there are many discussion group(mailing list) or there archive.
It is the first step to learn. and the e-mail for the very important contact point when your student don't know or ask something to the authors. 

 
> Anyone have suggestions for textbooks?  Know of existing class
> outlines available on the web?  Any other pointers?

first of all, 

Will you show your student the www.beowulf.org 's discussion archive  & the linking site from various University or Org?
and www.beowulf-underground.org ?
and other mailing list, FAQ, howto or Usenet site related in mpi ..

I read "Parallel Programming" by Wilkinson & Allen  Prentice Hall 
ISDN 0-13-671710-1
and the Program Source like mpich or LAM itself is starting point to teach, I think. 
and the Presentation & FAQ or manual by author is another point to start.

Thank you very much
