  1. Ben, since you do not know us 8th graders very well, do you think this collaborative work time is helping you get to know us?

    Since you feel your group did not utilize your full potential, do you think there is anything you could do next time in a group, to get noticed for something amazing?

    Do you feel that you are or can be a leader? If not, what can you do to make yourself one?

    Also, just a tip for projects, it may help to make a schedule for what to get done each day, so you don't have those last minute wrap ups. - Keara

    p.s. These questions are rhetorical, you don't have to answer.
