Homework and late work policy for this course:

We work individually and together to complete and understand the material. Lessons must be
finished, and corrected in a timely manner – answers are always available, corrections/reasons are
always required. Finding and correcting your errors is what programming is all about, you will be
responsible for grading your own worksheets – I will be grading the tests and projects. Deadlines will
be adjusted as necessary for the class when instructor deems it necessary and reasonable.

Student Expectations:

All students will complete their own individual projects while working as a team – just like in the real
world – we don’t live in a vacuum. Ground rules for the classroom:
     There are many other students in the class – everyone needs as many resources as possible
        – so be a resource!
     Be patient, everyone learns in different ways at different speeds
     When in class, you will be working on programming applications, either for the lessons or for
        portfolio projects
     Use your Gaggle email to collaborate with each other, sometimes blogging will be required as
        part of our lessons.
     Keep a positive attitude
     Be professional – you are part of a team, you have a job to do, and this is exactly the type of
        environment that most of you will experience in your careers.

       Each member of the team should...
      Try to be punctual, so the other members of the group do not have to repeat what was already
       said.
      Always keep the objective of the meeting in mind. Avoid talking about unrelated subjects.
      Think about yourself as part of the team and not as an individual. Talk to the group, not only to
       your neighbor. Be clear and short. Keep in mind that you are using the time of all the
       members.
      Don't interrupt while another person talks. Listen and try to understand her/him. Do not think
       about your answer while the other one is still talking, pay attention to what she says. If, what
Visual Basic Programming 2007-2008                                             Jan L. Hulstrom
      the other person says, is not clear, let her finish what she is saying and then ask for
      clarification.
     Contribute to reaching the objective, look for solutions and accept work related to the objective.
      Keep in mind that nobody has complete knowledge about a subject, that each contributes a
      greater or lesser share. Try to convince by reasons and examples, instead of emotions. The
      goal is to reach a conclusion agreed to by all, not to "win".
     Do not attack solutions that are impractical, the way they were presented, but try to make them
      usable by improving them. Do not attack other members, or talk about them. Talk only about
      the ideas that were presented. The meeting should be relaxed and friendly, in order to get
      better results.
     Keep in mind, that the conclusions of the group should be consensus. Every member should
      have expressed her or his opinions, and once convinced, should accept the conclusions
