Hey there, mentorees!
Until now, not much happened and I´m pretty sad as I imagined something else. I have to introduce a new method, namely homework examination:
With every group assignment, I´ll set a deadline. Everybody who hands in a homework that is precisely done, gets a +. An homework that is inadequate means a -. Additionally, I´ll give a mark on everybody´s take which is going to make up the final note. The final note will be published at the end of every month.

I also wanted to introduce a common activity: collaborations. I´m currently learning how to create backing tracks and so, I can make some for us.

I hope you understand my thoughts and accept them. smile.gif

Cheers,
Tolek

Edit:
I forgot to add something about the + and - system. From now on, I´ll only give an individual assignment if someone gets a +. smile.gif

Edit2: New rule: someone who doesn´t hand in his take to a collaboration, is going to get a -, except if he has a valuable excuse.



+/- System

  • You get a + when you do an excellent homework.
  • You get a - when you don´t hand in your homework or the take for the collaboration.
  • A + allows you to ask for an individual assignment on any topic and to get a comment on your playing (video/audio file apart from the MTP).
  • A - forces you to do the homework anyway and you get an additional "punishment" which is annoying, but helpful.

I think it might work good since its easier to remember and motivate to do the homework if there is a deadline

I have to be a bit strict. smile.gif But those "punishments" are surely helpful. wink.gif

I just made a little list about the +/- System:


+/- System

  • You get a + when you do an excellent homework.
  • You get a - when you don´t hand in your homework or the take for the collaboration.
  • A + allows you to ask for an individual assignment on any topic and to get a comment on your playing (video/audio file apart from the MTP).
  • A - forces you to do the homework anyway and you get an additional "punishment" which is annoying, but helpful.

Hey man,

If any of the guys wanted to drop out I would certainly enlist in their place! I have taken part in a few collabs now and am just getting a feel for things. Anyway, just let me know if a spot opens up and you think i fit the bill! wink.gif

Actually, Dreamcatcher isn´t active. He pmed me some days ago and stated that he has other things to do! So, normally a place is left... Ask Chris Evans about the situation, he´s the boss!
