This week was a little crazy with life and school and assignments not being due on the day of the week they are normally due and so I missed a couple of deadlines. I learned this week to check the due dates more closely.
As far as the group activity, it is our exam 3 “final”. Wow. Bowman set it up so we all answer every question and then we are going to go back in and vote on the best answer for each question. Of course, our group member that never participates until the very last second if she participates at all, has still not answered her questions and I am afraid that the test will be submitted and she will get credit for our work when she has not contributed at all. We will see what she does this weekend. Also, we had a little bit of conflict arise. A question was answered in what I thought was a funny way, but another team member took offense to it and layed into the other team member. He responded just as vehemently and the written argument went on for a couple of pages. We did not practice good conflict resolution in this. But I could understand where both sides made their points. I didn’t jump into the fray except to redirect back to the question at hand and pointed out that another team member had answered the question very effectively and that I voted for her answer.
I have enjoyed this class very much. There were A LOT of assignments but most of them were very helpful for me and I learned a lot. I have kept a lot of the articles we had to read and downloaded “Who Moved My Cheese” to be able to refer to it in the future. I am taking a lot away from this class and that doesn’t always happen.
