During the completion of the group project, I felt that initially it was difficult to allocate tasks

as because of the nature of the essay, the majority of the work was research based and

therefore required good research. To begin with it was discovered by all five group members

that too much information was found, most of which was essentially the same but obviously

worded in different ways. This caused problems as because of the volume of information

found, it took time to identify which information was necessary and which was to be included

within the work. Also it became confusing to keep track of which websites has been used as

the bulk of research was carried out on the internet. Eventually we came to the conclusion that

it would be best that only two people carry out research working together and keep notes of

the web pages. Also they made notes by hand to summarise the key points and therefore put it

into our own words. The other three group members were allocated the task of typing up the

essay in turns once it had been written out by hand with collective input. I had the

responsibility of carrying out the referencing and sorting through what ended up being quite a

number of websites. Another difficulty we came across was synchronising timings to work

together as everyone clearly had different timetables and various commitments. Overall

however I do feel that the project was a success and the team worked well together.

I feel that personally I work best individually as I have more trust in myself than others and
