  5. 5. Forming  Observations Although the group has been together for a year, the introduction of this project made us go through the team development stages again. The addition of a new cohort member changed group dynamics. Roles and groups changed. Our previous experiences with each other allowed us to work constructively with each other.
  6. 6. Forming (continued)  Advice Ask and encourage a lot of questions. Have someone take notes and keep a list of questions to ask the instructor. Determine everyone’s roles for the project.

  7. 7. Stage 2  Storming The second stage of a group's process is where conflict and confrontation arise.
  8. 8.
