Final Assignment: Creating Teams, Team Norms, Roles and Responsibilities

Team Norms
  • As you begin the final assignment for Journalism 120, you will have to create teams (3-4 people per team). 
  • Once you have created your team you will then have to decide on how you are going to work as a team.
  • Click here and copy the information in one of your Google Drive accounts using Google Docs. 
  • Discuss what you think should be your team norms and type the information using Google Docs.
  • When you have finished, share it with your teacher. Once your teacher has looked it over, you will then print it off. 
Team Roles and Responsibilities
  • In any effective team, it is always recognized that the work is shared. In order to help facilitate this practice, when your team meets, you will each have a specific role.
  • Click here to view the specific roles. Make your own copy of this file in one of your Google Drive accounts using Google Docs. 
  • There are four specific roles. If you have only three members, then two roles will have to be combined (combine task facilitator and time keeper/material collector) . 
  • Read over the roles as a team. Decide as team who will be responsible for each role when your team gets together. The roles have to be rotated; one team member cannot do the same role each time.
  • Type the information in Google Docs, using the schedule provided. Rotate the names so everyone has an opportunity to complete each role. 
  • When you have finished, share it with your teacher. Once the teacher has looked it over, you will then print it off.
Managing your Project
  • You will mange your project using an online application called Trello. 
  • Select a member of your team and click here to make a Trello account (You can log in using your  Google account). 
  • In Trello, create a new board and then make three lists: To do, Doing, Done. See the image below.
  • Add under the "To do" list the tasks indicated in the image below. Then move the tasks to the appropriate list as you work or complete them.
