The Real Cold War - High School History Group Project (2006)
I understand what McCord means when she tells Planet Money that work is more fun when everyone is interested in the team’s success and amazing at their jobs. I have had the opportunity to work on these kinds of teams (hi, Mike and Ester!) and it does make work more fun — and it makes the team part of work more fun. (I’ve also worked on teams that were about as much fun as high school group projects.)
In high school group projects were a blast
In high school group projects were a blast. Unless your teacher decided to cruelly assign your group alphabetically, you got to work with your friends or your secret crush. You had fun making videos and together. If there were issues, your teachers were almost always sympathetic. They knew you personally, knew what a good (or maybe not so good) you were, and what type of students your group members were too. They were eager to help you work through any issues.
