Working in groups is always a difficult task, but between the five of us we worked very efficiently. We kept in constant contact and used the end of class time to meet and talk about what we wanted to get done. Throughout the process of getting the project done, we often communicated to each other what the tasks were and who was going to do them. Usually we did everything pretty well, although we started kind of bad by not getting the first week tasks done. After that we started to head on the right track and the history portion of the project was where we united as a group and began to get things done. Everyone in the group was very committed to getting a good grade and making sure that everything was accomplished in a timely manner, which allowed us to trust each other throughout the project. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience for all of us.
