Developing Group Norms
First, each member of the group should introduce themselves.
Next, group members should consider their strengths and spend some time choosing the following roles:
Group norms are a strategy for anticipating the problems inherent in collaboration and developing agreed-upon expectations for behavior
the problems happen.
Understanding Group Norms
The first step in developing norms is to begin brainstorming possible problems that might come up as a result of collaborating within a group.
Brainstorming Possible Issues
Now, your group should narrow the list down to 8-10 common problems. Create norms that develop expectations to avoid those problems BEFORE they happen. For instance:
THE PROBLEM: Group members that arrive unprepared; therefore, other group members have to compensate for their irresponsibility.
THE NORM: I come prepared for discussion. I do my homework.
Developing the Norms
Leaders, please read the norms one last time. Can all the group members agree to adhere to the norms?
If so, shake hands on it!
For each session, during this final project, the leader will read the norms before beginning group work.
Do we agree?
Each person will need to tell the group: 1) His or her name, and 2) one strength he or she can bring to the group's work.
Once each member has introduced him- or herself, the rest of the group should welcome them...
The leader's job is to keep the group on task and focused on the discussion at hand.
The coach's job is to facilitate the discussion--calling on speakers when needed, making sure people don't interrupt each other, and encouraging folks who are not participating to speak.
The scribe will be the designated note-taker for the group. This job will require an ability to discern the key points of the discussions
The organizer will take on the task of distributing and organizing all materials for the group members and arranging the group's folder.
Once your group has decided on the roles, the scribe will need to write down the first and last names of each group member, along with roles, on the "Group Norms" sheet.
For example, our Inspire teachers have developed wonderful norms for our staff meetings.
PROBLEM: It's human nature to get frustrated with other group members. It's also human nature to want to "vent" about those problems behind others' backs. This can lead to divisiveness within the group.
THE NORM: If I have an issue with a fellow staff member, I confront that person directly.
What are all the things you HATE about working in groups? What issues have caused frustration in your past experiences with collaboration? As a group discuss the questions. On a separate sheet of paper, the scribe should list as many of these issues as possible.
The group will need to develop at least 10 norms. The scribe is responsible for writing the norms on the "Group Norms" sheet. These should be norms the entire group can get behind.
