Aims: In this task, you think about how you and your group worked together.

Here is a tree with lots of people on it. The tree can be seen as a representative
of your group as they worked together (or didn’t) on your task. Look at the tree
and choose people who you feel represent your roles during the group work.
Write on the tree:

      (a)   Your name showing who you were while doing the group work.
      (b)   The names of the other people in your group.
      (c)   Which person you would like to be in a future group task.
      (d)   Where you would like your other group members to be as you work
            together on another task.
