Module 18 - Working and Writing in Teams
Appendix 18-A: Sample Journal Entry
Well, here I am again typing on the computer. This journal entry
isn’t going to be as long as the last one because not much has
happened since the last time I wrote. Since my last entry, Pam,
Dean, and I met you to discuss revisions of Country Combo. The
group is planning on each person doing their own revisions rather
than a group effort combination. Hopefully this will turn out for the
best because all our time and effort needs to be centered on our new
project for which we have not yet decided on a topic.
As for an idea for our report, Pat and Mark seem to think that they
have a brilliant idea, but Pam, Dean, and I aren’t really too hip on
the idea because we don’t know much about the subject matter. Pat
and Mark have a class together and there is an idea from the book
they are using and they want to use that idea. The only problem is,
they are the only ones who know what they are talking about. I
have no problem with them using this idea if they can provide more
information and help explain the idea a little better. Hopefully
everything will go a little smoother with this project.
Now I’ll go a little deeper into some of the topics I discussed the last
time I talked with you. I hope you don’t mind that I used the term
“talk” because I do feel like I am talking into the computer when I
type on it.
Last time and this time I mentioned some of the problems that our
group is having. I think one way they we can solve these problems
is to be very open with one another. If we each voice our own
opinions and feelings up front and not hold back then
