The Block Game
Aldridge, Amy N.
Communication Teacher, v18 n2 p70-73 Apr 2004
Whenever group work takes place, rules and norms are established by group members. Rules are typically written and formally stated by group members, whereas norms are more informal and are implicitly stated. But regardless of how rules and norms are established, they enable group members to develop procedures from which the group can function. This activity provides an opportunity for in-class groups to follow the formal rules provided by the instructor while simultaneously establishing informal group norms. A list of references and suggested readings is included. (Contains 2 figures.)
