Let's face it, group assignments can be difficult and confusing. Without a strong leader and a good organization plan, things can quickly fall into chaos.

To get off to a great start, you will need to get together to make two decisions at the very beginning:

  • You will have to choose a group leader and make sure the leadership style is agreed upon.
  • Choose a system for organizing yourself.

When selecting a group leader, you will need to choose someone with strong organizational skills. Remember, this is not a popularity contest! For best results, you should choose someone who is responsible, assertive, and serious about grades.



This guide is designed to show you how to organize a group writing project using Google Docs, because the focus is on writing a paper together. Google Docs allows shared access to a single document.
