The Meeting. Now that you have developed a plan and set tasks for each group member it is time to get everyone together. At this meeting you will outline the overall goal of the assignment. You will also dole out the tasks. All team members must be aware of what others in the group are doing to complete the goal. Therefore it is very important to make sure everyone understands what their role is as well as the roles of their peers.
A good plan template is also great for keeping parents informed about their kids' activities as well. While this doesn't apply so much for college courses, it's deeply important for preschool through middle school at the very least. Not only does this give parents a way to know what their children are learning about, but it also gives them a chance to participate as well, such as acting as a field trip chaperon or an assistant for a class event. In the unlikely event that a parent objects with the subject the student is learning, the parent will be able to learn this right away rather than in the middle of the semester.
