Name of coding convention used when learning to write code.

Does anyone remember what the name is of the convention of brainstorming or precoding code?  

Let's say each person in the class was learning a different language.  The teacher would say, let's just write the procedure in _________.  

It would look something like this:

'OPEN THE CONNECTION

'FOR EACH ROW
 'GET THE ID
 'LOOKUP ANOTHER TABLE BASED ON THIS ID

'CLOSE THE CONNECTION

What is the name for this type of pre-coding convention!??  My buddy and I have a mental block.

Thanks,
