    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is built to help students how to tackle groups. It focuses on bringing light to the many roles that a group has and why they are important. It helps build relationships with peers through a group project and fun group activities to physically demonstrate the concepts that are being taught.

    Course highlights:

    One activity that stood out to me was the end of the year activity where instead of working with just our group, we split the room in half to create two groups and our task was to bring a thin pole all the way to the floor using only our index fingers. The catch was " the pole must touch everyone's fingers at all times." It definitely showed how although we had such a great relationship with our own groups, we have to remember that we are also part of a bigger group and we need to work together in order to make things happen.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to take very details notes! Professor Shelby will let you record her if you ask, do it! It allows you to go back into the lecture if you missed something. Make sure everything is in order and make your CALL appointment as soon as you can. Professor Shelby is really helpful and will do what she can in order to help you succeed so take advantage of that and talk with her.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved Summer! She was very clear in her classes and she always knew how to make her concepts interesting. However, be warned, her classes go by quickly so there is a lot of book reading. Her projects are clever and creative. They're also a good way to connect with people and learn the concepts that she is teaching.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the projects! She does two major projects, the "How-To" project and the "Shark Tank" project. These projects give you a chance to practice what Summer has taught you the entire semester. You start to notice things like who fulfills certain roles in the group and group norms.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings and do the homework! They really help clarify the coursework and they are important for quizzes! Also ALWAYS participate in group meetings. They are a major part of your grade and it will help create a better and more cooperative environment in the classroom.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who hopes to expand their knowledge on Small Group Communication. This course was taught by an excellent professor, and the textbook was very helpful. This course brought the class through learning about Small Groups in Business Oriented settings, as well as family, and casual settings. This class was extremely helpful, as now I am more knowledgable on Small Group Communication.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course I learned about the benefits of Small group communication, and how important it is. I learned about various topics such as teamwork, and theories associated with the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class! If you write down good notes, and go to class, then you will be good. Also, be prepared to work with groups, thus the name of the course "Small group communication". If you want an easy course, and a learning experience, take this course.
