Group Review: Learning Styles And Learning Theories
I think overall our group deserves an 8/10. In my opinion our group started rather slowly and grew one by one. After receiving an initial email from Alyssa introducing herself we exchanged a few emails getting to know each other and opening the lines of communication.
