As discussed in the Journaling at Epicodus lesson, each weekend you'll receive a journaling assignment in addition to your coding homework. You'll then discuss your responses with a partner the following class session.
You were asked to write responses to the following in your journal over the weekend:
Looking back on your experience in the previous two courses, what do you think helped you learn tough new concepts the most? (Taking notes while completing homework? Making sure to talk through everything verbally with your partner? Something else?) Jot down anything that comes to mind.
Similarly, think back to your most successful pairing experiences. What common traits did they share? (Did you make sure to check periodically to ensure neither partner felt overwhelmed? Talk through everything before making decisions?) Record anything that comes to mind.
Discuss what you recorded in your journal with your partner.
Talk about what each partner thinks helped them learn tough concepts from previous courses. Have you tried each other's approaches? Did they work for you? Why or why not.
Similarly, discuss what you each identified as factors in successful pairing experiences. Talk through how you can apply these factors to your experience working together in class today, and beyond.
