I feel as though our walking tour group project worked well. Everyone did their individual part to make sure that the presentation worked smoothly. We continually communicated throughout the process, adhering to the different group members forms of contact. Our group activities were fun and interesting. From listening to my peers feedback of our presentation I’ve concluded that it looked well organized and that the activities were intriguing. Our project worked well because we all listened to each others ideas and planned based on what everyone was comfortable doing. Having class time really helped our group get past the planning stage of this project. It gave us time to get together in person rather than over e-mail which would have caused confusion and less work getting done. This assignment was effective in teaching me that you can have a group that will consistently work together to get an assignment or project done. From past experiences I have not been so lucky with groups working in a cohesive matter.
