This was the semester I really started to get some traction in terms of articulating what the students needed in a way they would understand readily. I came to believe that the students needed at least one class under their belts before they were expected to do heavy duty coding. These students had already struggled through a semester of Web 1 before I got to teach them, so I was able to start them off with a swift reeducation to get them excited about coding raw.
