Project Suggestions?

Yes, I knew that I could­n’t pos­si­bly get through a class called Small Group Com­mu­ni­ca­tions with­out endur­ing a group project.

There are two. And they make up the vast major­i­ty of our grades.

I would­n’t take the class if it weren’t required for the degree.

The first project involves watch­ing a small group inter­act, in per­son, with per­mis­sion, and report­ing on it. We must be able to observe the group 2–3 times over a peri­od of a week or two. 

The things I’ve thought about, though, are groups where I’m at least mar­gin­al­ly involved or per­son­al­ly know peo­ple who are involved. It would be dif­fi­cult not to inter­act with the group myself, which is a no-no. That changes what’s observed, of course.

So, sug­ges­tions? The group has to be in the metro Atlanta area, and open to let 5–6 col­lege stu­dents observe a few meet­ings. (Qui­et­ly. If the oth­er observers aren’t qui­et, I’ll just have to cut their throats or something.)

(The pro­fes­sor men­tioned that a group in one past class observed “Wic­ca peo­ple.” The stu­dents were unhap­py because there were some events they could observe, and oth­ers that they could­n’t. The entire idea of an ini­tia­to­ry reli­gion with pri­vate rit­u­als seemed to go right past the pro­fes­sor when I attempt­ed to explain it.)
