Often, a team can manage the collaborative assignment by using some group reporting techniques from the workplace. By planning the writing and reporting regularly to your teacher, you can keep the project on target and get guidance from your teacher when you need it. As a team, your collaborative writing group should plan to write the following for your assignment:
progress report memo (written and submitted after the first group meeting) with subsequent informal progress reports submitted weekly
editing strategy for your group project
information plan to manage the project
formal progress report
evaluation for each team member
These tasks are described in a box in the following section on methodology.
