I always end up doing all the work! We interrupt this lesson with a look inside your head… I hate team work! Why should my mark depend on other people? So-and-so is very bossy and takes over everything!
Back to our regular scheduled lesson! So, you’ve been assigned a project. Great! Here’s your chance to work on something that answers the age old student question; “When am I ever going to use this?”
Answer:all the time in your future job. The projects will change, but working with other people will stay the same.
There will always be people who don’t contribute or who bulldoze over everyone else. Maybe even you will be one of those people!
Here’s your chance to improve your skills on how to deal with such situations. You now get an opportunity to practise how you might handle these situation.
You don’t get better at something until you’re forced to practice reactions.You’ll come up with something that will benefit the group and you!
