Problem-Possibility-Pursuit-Presentation Portfolio Project
Bedner, Nelle; MacLennan, Janet
Communication Teacher, v18 n3 p102-105 Jul 2004
In a time when nearly half the country's employees are currently working in self-directed work groups, successful team working within organizations is more important than ever. The Problem-Possibility-Pursuit-Presentation (PPPP) Portfolio Project is designed to give students an opportunity to experience teamwork in a meaningful fashion. This activity allows students to become familiar with the rewards and sense of possibility as well as the challenges and frustrations encountered by small groups attempting to solve a problem. Additionally, this activity stresses the importance of "process" vis-a-vis its four distinct parts. Students cannot draw conclusions or solve the problem until they have methodically worked through each section. A list of references and suggested readings is included.
