In class for the past few weeks, we've been working on critical theory projects. In those projects, we had to write a paper connecting our critical theory to whatever play we chose to work with. My group in particular chose to connect the critical theory of deconstruction to the play King Lear, by Shakespeare.
Writing our group paper was a bit of a challenge, since there were four people writing one paper. However, we managed to pull it off. We each had a paragraph or two to write, and when we finished writing our individual thoughts, we looked at them all and tried to tie them together so that our paper would look like the paper had one author and had a nice flow to it. It took teamwork to make one paper with four people, and I think our group did that pretty well.
Like our paper, our presentation would not have had a nice flow without teamwork and communication. In order to have our presentation look like one presentation and not just four different presentations in one slide show, we had to make group decisions on how our presentation was going to look. Whenever we were going to make a change to the presentation, we talked about what we all individually thought about the idea. We did not talk about every single little edit that we were going to make, since that would be quite unnecessary. We just needed to communicate our ideas with each other, and discuss any big changes in the presentation. With our communication and teamwork, we managed to pull off the difficult task of making a group presentation, along with a group paper.
