Gunn and Heid: Teaching Small Group Development with Reality TV
Kopaczewski, Shana
Communication Teacher, v31 n2 p74-78 2017
Courses: Small group communication or any courses with units on group/team work. Objective: In this single-class activity, students will use reality TV to identify Tuckman's five phases of group development: forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning. Students analyze how phases of group development manifest through group interaction and ultimately contribute to group performance. (A combined list of references and suggested readings is provided.)
