Working together as a cohesive group is one of the most fundamental elements of our success as students of Shorter University. Cooperative efforts from individuals of different ages and backgrounds can substantially enrich the experiences of all persons within the group. Without the benefit of a well built team, either in an academic or workplace setting, success is simply not possible. Discipline and dedication from each of the team members is critical to the achievement of the group as a whole. Keeping this important ideal in mind, our learning team selected its tutorial topic: Team Building.

Our learning team began the process of constructing our tutorial presentation by keeping some objectives in mind. First, we wanted to make sure that the quality of our research was exceptional. When a researcher sets out on a journey to find information and broaden his base of knowledge, he does not want to hastily gather whatever is easiest to find. His job is to dig deeper and work harder to locate the necessary components to answer the questions he has.. In doing so, he will be assured that he has covered a vast breadth of evidence and his foundation of knowledge is solid.

Another crucial element in formulating our tutorial and its topic was making sure proper credit was given to those who have come before us, and had laid the groundwork for the vast superhighway of information that is available to all of us in the 21st century. We wanted to be certain that we cited our references. Ignoring this responsibility is, at the very least, detrimental to a student’s collegiate career and could be the beginning of further legal issues as well.

Next we employed the Eisenberg and Berkowitz Big 6 tool (task definition, information seeking strategies, location and access, use of information, synthesis and evaluation) in initiating and documenting our research sources. From this point, we looked to the Pathfinder for further direction. This useful guide directed us to helpful reference books such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks and manuals. These resources were of significant value as they assisted us in identifying keywords and subject headings while using the Shorter Library catalog and the Gwinnett County Public Library catalog to find additional material. Through the utilization of these catalogs, we were able to gain access to additional data through books, scholarly journals and articles. Web pages on the subject of team building were also researched extensively. The information gleaned from these beneficial online resources added various other perspectives to our repertoire on team building research.

Main points and purpose of the work

  • Waite, L. J., Goldschneider, F. K., & Witsberger, C. (1986). Nonfamilyliving and the erosionof traditional family orientations among young adults. American Sociological Review, 51 (4), 541-554.
    • The authors, researchers at the Rand Corporation and Brown University, use data from the National Longitudinal Surveys of Young Women and Young Men to test their hypothesis that nonfamily living by young adults alters their attitudes, values, plans, and expectations, moving them away from their belief in traditional sex roles. They find their hypothesis strongly supported in young females, while the effects were fewer in studies of young males. Increasing the time away from parents before marrying increased individualism, self-sufficiency, and changes in attitudes about families. In contrast, an earlier study by Williams cited below shows no significant gender differences in sex role attitudes as a result of nonfamily living.

Commentary on the authors objectivity, if he was biased or the work was aimed at reaching a particular audience.
