Group Tasks

Each student will also be given tasks and responsibilities that align with the project. For example, a video storytelling project might include the need for editing, writing the script, and adding materials. When creating a collaborative project, the teacher might have to outline these tasks and allow group members to decide which ones they want. Another idea is for the teacher to give group members time to brainstorm what tasks must be accomplished, then delineate group member responsibilities and duties.

I tend to take the latter route and allow students to offer their skills.
