Collaborative Writing

Assignments to Accompany the Group Project

Often, a team can manage the collaborative assignment by using some group-reporting techniques from the workplace. By planning the writing and reporting regularly to your instructor, you can keep the project on target and receive guidance from your instructor when you need it. As a team, your collaborative writing group should plan to write the following for your assignment:

  • progress report memo (written and submitted after the first group meeting), with subsequent informal progress reports submitted weekly

  • editing strategy for your group project

  • information plan to manage the project

  • formal progress report

  • review draft

  • final project

  • evaluation for each team member

These tasks are described in the next section on methodology.
