DOS 711 - Weeks 1 & 2 AMA Group Project
Our first group project was the AMA Challenge. All of our writing is done in the American Medical Association (AMA) style, and as we start delving into research, total familiarity with how to cite other works will be critical. We were given a large set of citation situations and our task was to collaboratively format every citation in the proper style. Leadership and management of the process developed on an ad-hoc basis, and we quickly divided the set up between the 10 students, with each student answering one section and double checking someone else's answers on another section. Several people, including me, performed third and fourth checks as necessary. I volunteered to compile the final answer document by picking out the group consensus answer from each section's mini-discussion.
