Working successfully as a member of a group and a group in general will require cooperation. To me, the definition of cooperation is that everyone gets to share their ideas, everyone gets a say in the matter, and that there is no definate leader. When there is no leader, everyone is an equal. Cooperation doesn't mean that you just let people do the work for you or you go along with it if you don't like it. It means that if you don't like something, you come up with a comprimise. It means that you work yourself beyond your goal. You put your head in the game and decide who will do what and make sure you all agree. You and your group push their abilities to the fullest extent, so that when the teacher grades your work you put in your best effort. You don't have to be best friends with everybody, but when you have to work with someone you don't know you have to let them share their ideas and maybe you can get a different perspective on something.
I don't think I could have said it any better Alexis. Spot on!
sorry that i put just my name. but when i was done typeing my name i thought that i could press enter then i would be able to start typeind, but aparently NOT!!! anyway, i do agree that you should all share ideas in a group so everone has a say,and that there should be no leader because that could start a fight. i know this because this is what happens between me makayla and katelyn in any group that we are in,because we all try to be the leader.
So Emily, how do you solve these issues?
Well we didnt yet but that is someting we can talk about tomorrow. and alexas is also in one of our groups and she helps with ou t problems too. another thing is we mostly fight about each one of us wanting to do everything, and thats not gona work. a way that we can solve this is that we each get an equial amount of stuff to do. and if it meand=s each persone getting 3 things to do and haveing 1 thing left, i can do the one thing.i also thing we might need some of your help if we have another fight the next time our groups meet!
so as you might of been able to tell, the last time me makayla and katelyn meet in our group for morning meeting, we did not fight. horray we did not fight!!
I felt that was because you were able to compromise.
Hi Mr. Travers I have forgoten my spelling words, but i have looked at the spelling list to get the words soo they will be on a piece of paper. This is my first time being on your website sorry i couldnt have been on it before because I am busy wih soccer practice, also soccer games, and other stuff. Just to let you know Katelyn and I have made up, we are best friends now. Nice to talk to you. Good Night see you tomorrow.
Hey Makayla, I couldn't be happier that you and Katelyn were able to solve your problem. Not to mention that you were responsible to complete your homework :)
