Our group seemed to function well together. There was some reluctance to volunteer to be leader. However, many people are reluctant to lead when the objective and expectations are a little unclear. Once we picked a topic, everyone seemed to really dig in and get the tasks accomplished. One weakness from my prospective was individuals not wanting to weigh in on a direction to take. Keeping the group focused and on task can make or break collaborative efforts.

Technical Definition Assignment

My group consisted of Shannon, Tracy, and Ashley. The term we chose was hostile environment. I feel we functioned well together as a group. We were able to pick a term and assign a method for each member to write about. One area we took a little time to come to a consensus about was the format for the Wetpaint site.

Service Learning Project

I chose the Saginaw Art Museum for my service learning project. The museum is located on Michigan Avenue in a historic home. This home belonged to the Ring family. They were a well to do lumber era family. I have a meeting with Kara Friday November 6 to discuss possible projects. She was excited about this project. I'll add to this post as soon as I know more. I met with Kara and Ryan today to discuss in more detail their document needs. They are interested in creating a brochure to market the rental of museum space for events. We discussed some ideas for the brochure and also toured the museum rental areas.
