Nowadays, team assignments and individual assignments are common in both schools and workplaces. While some people prefer to work in a group, others think working alone is more convenient. I am in favor of the latter opinion.

Firstly, working as a individual enables people to work more efficiently. To be more specific, when people work alone, they do not have to depend on others to choose the same spare time and how to delivery a presentation. For example, this semester, I had a presentation on my academic writing course, and the teacher asked us to prepare individually. When I started to make the slides, I can depend on my opinion, such as what words I want to say and what pictures to show. I was clear about what I want to deliver to audiences, so I only need to write down the sentences efficiently. However, if I choose to work with others, we may argue about the details of the slides, for everyone has different thinkings. When students exchange ideas and discuss any difference with each other, they will waste a lot of time.

Secondly, working as a individual is fairer than working in a team. Specifically speaking, if people have teammates who never to do any task, they have to do all the tasks on their own. For instance, my roommate Linda had the terrible experience. When Linda’s team did a presentation of biology course, most of her teammates were lack of responsibility. Some of the teammates did not attend on the discussion time and refused to check any information. Thus, because the score is crucial, Linda had to finish all the tasks alone. She did experiments in laboratory for days, found literature in library, and submitted the paper in the end. Linda said she was very tired and busy that days, and do not want to work with these irresponsible people anymore.

In conclusion, when comparing with teamwork, doing individual assignments is not only efficient, but also fairer, for people only should responsible for themselves.
