There is no class on 4/5 because of the Easter Holiday. We will meet again on 4/12, which is when we’ll go over your final so you can start preparing as a group. Be sure to keep in mind what you learned from your midterm experiences. Below is the homework due on 4/12:
DUE April 12th, no later work accepted:
Read Chapter 8 before answering the questions. You can’t answer them otherwise. You can skip the case study part in the beginning of the chapter.
1. What roles did group members play in the group you were in during the first half of the semester? Refer to roles listed under these headings in chapter: Deviant roles, Formal Roles, Informal Roles, Task Roles, & Building and Maintenance Roles. Members maybe have played more than one role. Some of you did not assign “Formal roles.” Be specific about the roles and what members did to show they were playing that role.
2. During the egg drop exercise what roles did your group members play that are listed in Tables 8.1 and 8.2? Again, some members may have played more than one role. Be specific about the roles and what members did to show they were playing that role.
Also Answer: Page 157, Question 2, 4, 5. The definition of work group is in your glossary. (Needed for Q5)
