BUS210: Corporate Communication
15.1: What Is a Group?
Please read the Chapter 19 introduction and "Section 1: What Is a Group?". This section makes a distinction between groups and teams, breaks groups down into various types based on their structure and function, and discusses the impact of group size on member participation. Try to answer the exercise questions at the end of the reading. For any questions that prompt you to work or share with a classmate, instead work with a family member or friend.
Watch the first three lectures in this series of nine videos presented by Ryan Guy, a professor of Communication Studies and the Director of Forensics at Modesto Junior College. You should watch each of these videos in the order they are presented because Professor Guy’s lectures assume you have absorbed information from the preceding videos’ topics and can apply that information to what he is discussing in current lecture.
