Did you do nothing and let you partners do all the work? Did YOU do all the work because no one else would, or refused to, or were lazy, or gave excuses, etc? Did someone want THEIR particular idea/answer/argument to dominate, leading your ideas and voice to be subordinated? What were the power dynamics in the group? Did you half-ass the assignment because you didn’t really care, or had too much work in other classes, or had too much work to do at your job, or too many social obligations to attend to? Did you talk and discuss and debate and come up with nothing, and then throw something together half-ass at the last minute? Did you not trust yourself, your partners, your analytical skills, your self-confidence, or intellectual abilities?

You do NOT need to write this aspect of the assignment as a standard Human Event essay, with an argument, etc. Just write a 2-3 page document that details the process in as clear and precise a way as possible.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
