Colorado State University Post-Project Reflection
Group projects – either you love them or you hate them. In some ways, it can make your paper-writing easier because you get to hear other people’s opinions, and your share of the total outcome is usually small. In other ways, it can make your process of finishing your paper frustrating because you and your group members do not share the same thoughts. I think that during any group project, you will go through times with frustration and other times with enjoyment. It was the same case for me for this group project, and in this paper, I will go through what was successful and what could have been done better in our group.
The first thing that popped into my mind about what we did well as a group was our honesty with each other.

By having that incentive, I did better, because I knew it would affect my grade. In the future, I will try to have that same determination and effort since it will better other’s thoughts about me, and hopefully it will make the project better
