It is important to work as part of team as this can only gain better results, you can listen to other people and their ideas and also share your own ideas and experiences. Working as a team can also reduce your own work load through sharing good practice, sharing worksheets, saving time preparing your own worksheets for your class. Everyone within your team will know what the target goal is and work together to achieve it. Relationships between staff within your team will get stronger and you will feel valued and this will help build your confidence and self esteem. When you work together there is consistency therefore if a
Learning how to work effectively in a group situation is key to success in many professions as well as in social situations. Groups vary from each other based on the individuals that make up each group, all of us belong to various groups at one time or another. The roles that we fulfill vary from group to
In my opinion, group work is a type of cooperative learning that helps people to accomplish a certain task in a faster and more effective manner. Team working also helps to achieve the tasks that are impossible to finish by one individual. However, if people in a group have a lot of conflicts, group work will not be able to achieve as much as we expected. There are many reasons which lead to dissatisfaction in group work such as individualism as well as conflicts in opinion and time.
In the article “Small Group Communication” Garth Pittman states that working in groups can actually be very helpful because it will get the job done faster, and develop skills that can be useful at work, school, and/or personal life. He clarifies that people will have different ideas and collaborate with one another to work well in the group. If they can get along well and manage to separate the work, then the project will get done on time without having any troubles. Pittman points out working in groups can get complicated. Few people in the group will not connect with the rest of the members. For those who aren’t used to being in groups can find themselves having a hard time getting use to it. The author believes that there is certain ways
When I become a teacher I plan to have my students work in cooperative groups because this allows them a chance to share their knowledge and ideas with their peers. Due to the fact that most students are on different developmental levels, those students who are of higher developmental levels can provide the other students with their ideas and perception of their knowledge. I feel that teachers should not be scared to let their students participate in group work because I think it is a great method of learning.
Since much of our time is spend in groups, it is helpful to work in groups because it will give an opportunity to improve their human functioning. Group work helps to develop individual skills in communication, relationship building and asserting oneself
Working in groups has also helped me form a more efficient writing process. We had a very organized writing process within our groups. First, we would start by writing a rough draft. I knew what rough drafts were, but I had not really written any before. I used to think they were pointless, but now I see rough drafts as an outline of my paper. Rough drafts are very important to me, because I now use them as a guide. Having a writing process that I know works for me, allows me to be more confident in what I write. When I am confident in what I write, I believe my writing, overall, is better.
Throughout life there are many instances in which an individual has to work in a group to complete a task/project. The importance of group work is to have teamwork with each member of the group. Humans are driven to connect with each other and by working as a group ideas become much more enriched and the ideas or thoughts that each person ‘brings to the table’ each individual is able to add onto that idea or it can trigger one to think of something completely different.
Working in a group was a great way to get to know my classmates. Despite our differences, we worked together and completed the assignment. I like working in a group, but sometimes I would rather do the assignment on my own. Group work has its good and bad effects.
This change is important, and valuable for me because I did not used to work as a team. I preferred to work alone because I thought that working, as a team is waste time. However, I was wrong, and I was missing out on the benefits of teamwork, such as active learning, key critical thinking, communication, and decision-making skills. All those factors are essential for the development of student learning. Now everything changed, I like to work in a group because I can share my ideas, and discuss one subject about it. In addition, teamwork has brought me many benefits in my life as a student. One of that benefits is I am more responsible. For instance, if I have to research one subject, I have to read many books or find the right information on the Internet, and deliver my investigation on time to discuss the information as
From personal experience I feel better if I can work with just one or two people. Working with more than that most of the time for me it doesn’t work, because when you have different personalities then that is when you have conflicts within a group. I know that you will have to work in a group some of the time, but I think that it is better if you work alone. It also depends on what the job entitles some do want us to work with others and some don’t so it really doesn’t matter to me either way, if I do then I do. When I work with other people at my job we always have fun in doing our jobs, we like what we do and like to work with everyone. We take training classes together, and lunch so we can get along. I feel as though if you can get along with others then you can work in a
We all remember those boring days back in middle school where the worksheets were given out everyday, and you were just waiting for that beautiful sound of the two words “group work” to run through your ears and brighten up your day. It just made you want to jump out of your seat and start working because of how excited you were. In my opinion, group work is something that I must strongly agree with because it helps with so many things including teaching different real life skills, lets you have fun, and helps you meet new
First of all, group work is better than independent work because students get socialize. Students get to be with their friends and joke around. Have a blast with their friends. People also get to work with people that you don’t know. They can become friends with them and make new relationships with them. Also in group work is better because students are forced to work with the people that they don't like. And they can become friends with them too.
Have you ever been working alone and needed help? Our group agrees that working in small pairs or groups with other classmates is helpful because your knowledge grows, you get the diversity of others in your work, and if you are stuck you have a group of peers ready to assist you. Groups not only help you and your peers, but help your teachers as well. Small groups are extremely helpful, and we definitely recommend their use in schools.
I used to believe that I did not perform very well in groups. I am an observer who likes to learn alone. I thought I learned best when I worked on my own. Even though I always knew group work had many positive values, I was more comfortable with the lecture-based approach and resisted group work merely because it involved change, not because it had a collaborative learning approach. However, during the learning community project, I came to realize that I learn more effectively when I work in groups. Working in a group was like an adventure for me; there were both exciting and challenging times while preparing for the learning community project.
