It doesn’t matter what setting you are in, when the Instructor, organizer, teacher, whatever, tells you to get into groups we all have the same responses…
“Great, now my mark isn’t my own.”
“I’m going to end up doing anything?”
“I don’t have time for this.”
Those are the negative responses to having to work with people we have either preconceived notions of or experiences from in the past.
But if your first response to sitting down with your group, when they first start dividing up work is to say – “I’ll do it.” – well then you’ve set the tone for the group and everyone that comes after you.
The tone being – we volunteer first, worry about the results second.
