I don't understand group projects. I have spent a good chunk of my college life in group projects. I don't know what the point is. My professors always say, "Group projects teach you how to interact with people in the real world." What the crap?!!?
As if I didn't know how to interact with people, as if I haven't had any experience working with people I didn't like, but having to treat them kindly anyway. Hello!!! I have a job, and I do this all the time. There have been a good share of employees because there is high turnover, and I have had to work with lots of different people I didn't necessarily like on projects I didn't necessarily enjoy.
Group projects are ways for professors to cram more crap into my already booked schedule. Between work, class, homework, and trying to live life, I hate trying to mesh schedules with the five other group members. Trying to find a common time for five very different people to meet is nearly impossible.
The group project for this class is lame because it is regurgitated information from the chapter in the textbook. It is something I feel that my professor should be doing. Shouldn't the professor be the one actually teaching the class?! Instead she makes us tell the class about the chapter, which does nothing except bore everyone out of their minds. I feel like I am learning nothing, no new information. I feel like my professor should be bringing new information in that relates to the chapter, not having us vomit information at our fellow classmates.
