OVERVIEW

Review the Collaborative Project Overview before filling out this form. This “group contract” will be used for two purposes: (1) to make sure that every member of the group has a clear sense of the group’s goals and their own role in reaching those goals; (2) to clearly define goals, approaches, and roles so that I can fairly evaluate the work that is done.  To fill out the contract, engage in a conversation about each of the following topics:

 

CONTEXT/FOCUS

 

Every project must have a very specific, refined, and unique scope.  Work with your group to identify the context of your project.  As we’ve discussed in class, the context should be very narrow. Write it below:
