Team work? yeah right

November 7th, 2007 at 07:25 pm

I hate team work , my instructor suggested that we team up and was really encouraing it. Any way a classmante that I have had in my class for a while we decided to team up ( I thought this was a great idea) She actually teamed up with another classmate on the last assignment and was upset because she stated "she did all the work" Now I am starting to wonder. I thought we would both type up an essay about what we thought about the assignment and combine the two, wrong. She basically took over, I sent her my work and her comments were "it is all right" All right I worked my butt off not to mention I am the one who greated the graph for our assignment that she will be using. Grant it she has a high grade in the class and I have an "A" so why is she so dead set on not incorporating my work? I am PO'd
I think she did the same thing with her last partner who did not mind, but I want to learn, I want to know if I am interpeting the graphs right

    Sounds like she is a control freak.

    I run into a lot problem with groups too, but usually it's the opposite where people refused to do any work. One time I got a person who wanted to take charge and decided everything on her own, which got on my nerve since I'm the in charge type too haha. I objected, loudly, and demanded that she take my input into account or we split cause I can do the work just fine on my own. Suffice to say, I got my way. Most of the time, thing like this happen because one person doesn't trust the other's quality of work. Be aggressive with confidence and I'm sure she'll compromise; ask to see her work so you can do your own critique.

    I actually sent the instructor my work thus far so that he knows I worked or attempted to work on this project as well because I plan on letting him know that even though I did the work I was not included. I just realize she deosn't the work herself she has a cousin who is a hospital administrator so she is basically re-wording and formatting her assignments (basically doing her work) that is why she pretty much took over. Now I realize why she was stressing that she did all the work in the last assignment with her other partner, pretending she work so hard and the other girl did not even try. I was there when she told her since I did the graph you can sent it to your friend,she (her partner) knew all along that she wasn't dong the work and was happy with it but I am not. She knows I get good grades i have had her in my class now at least 3 semesters, this is the first time that she has actually done much better than me

    I was just about to suggest that you speak with your instructor but this is definitely a learning experience because this often happens in the real world. Learn how to handle this now so that you can effectively handle people like this in the future. Good luck to you.

    FYI: he (my instructor)responded to my email and stated it was great, so I sent what I had to my classmate we'll see if she uses anything
