You were provided a journal on your first day of class. Each weekend you'll receive a brief journaling assignment in addition to your coding homework. (Review the Journaling at Epicodus lesson for a refresher.)
Think critically about the following questions, and record brief yet honest responses. Include a date or timestamp and quick summary of the prompt to refer to later.
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.
We'll discuss our responses at our next class session. Make sure your responses are recorded before then!
