Hi all,
Some of you had questions about how many journal questions we have
assigned for NR105.  I'm sure you've been keeping up with them, but to
allay your concerns, here is the full set of our questions.

Class 1:
- What do we mean when we talk about "an environmental problem?"
- Reflect on your group's process.  What worked and what didn't work?
What could you do to make meetings run more smoothly next time?
- What do you hope to learn from your experience NR105?

Class 2:
- How might your lodging space allocations have differed for Yosemite
Valley if you had done the assignment alone, using only the information
from your article?  Can you conclude that the sum is, indeed, greater than
the parts?  Explain.
- What are the best ways to find information for a project?  What are the
worst ways?
- What sources of information exist and how can you find them?

Class 3:
- Reflect on the effectiveness of your group to perform the tasks on
- What made your group experience effective or not effective?
- How did you personally contribute to the group's overall goals?

Class 5:
- How might you use your knowledge of personality types to the advantage
of your long-term group later this semester?  Explain.
- What are some of the ways that personality types might cause
communications problems among your group members?
- How might you develop your understanding of personality types and use it
to help you in the future?

Class 6:
- What are your group's potential strengths and weaknesses?
