Readings for this week discuss several different
task types: intellective and judgmental,
collective recall, and creative (generating ideas).
Essay C Assignment:
1. For each of the three case studies, classify the types of tasks the group performed.
2. Identify one example of a group
having trouble with a particular task,
and (drawing on the readings) suggest
what might be causing the problem.

multiple tasks, and some complex tasks have
elements of more than one type.
