The A-Team's Dynamics Report
Professor Glaser, I will also bring in a hard copy tomorrow in class.  I
could not remember if you had a preference.  Thanks

	As the demands on a college student increase with higher level
courses, study groups are almost essential for the success of most
students.  The A-Team unanimously agrees that the current system is a
great idea but a few improvements would increase its usefulness.  For
example, Melissa and Jessica worked together often, and they feel that
possibly forming groups later in the term would allow people to get to
know each other and make more useful groups.  Brooke and Jill study
together often as well, but they believe they would have done so
regardless of the group.  Scott and I discussed chemistry outside of
class a few times, but he did not feel part of the group.  Personally,
the group helped me somewhat because Brooke and I met before the first
two exams in the Pershing lounge, and my scores reflected the benefits
of those meetings.  However, I suggest that a required group project
similar or identical to group projects of previous years early in the
semester would bring the group together more.  Increased comfort between
strangers would lead to more activity in the group.  Overall, we all
believe the formation of groups should be continued in future years, but
we also believe that it needs some improvement.
