groupwork

Today we started our Malcolm Gladwell book presentations! I was very impressed with most of them – it sounds like you’ve learned some cool things from your readings. We’ll continue with the presentations on Friday and Monday. Just a note – please make sure that your group is not going over 12 minutes or so (especially in third and fourth periods, as those classes are larger).

And I’ve mentioned this in class, but I am adjusting grades based on individual group members’ contributions. Some of you have expressed some mild frustration with your peers’ work ethics, and I completely understand how frustrating that can be! However, I think learning to deal with that dilemma is actually a very worthwhile lesson – unfortunately, I think that’s going to be a challenge that you encounter on through your careers. But I’m really going to try to make your grades for this assignment as fair as possible!
