    The reading and the lecture discuss a team working on a project. The professor puts forward three points and effectively refutes the opinions of the reading passage.

    To begin with, the reading says that a group of people will have a wide range of expertise and skills. In contrast, the professor claims that some team members get free rides, contribute nothing to the project and get benefits. Besides, the main contributor of the group cannot have the name because the reward is for the whole group.

    Next, the reading believes that people can work quickly and think of creative solutions. But the professor argues that achieving agreements among all group members is difficult. Thus, a group of people will have longer time to reach a consensus through lots of meetings.

    Finally, the reading states that the individual team member will have the chance to make decisions and contributions to the teams’ overall results. However, the professor contradicts that some influential members will have a great impact on the group decisions. What is more, others’ suggestions and warnings may be ignored. As a result, all members are to be blame for the unsuccessful project.

    Both the reading passage and the lecture discuss a team working on a project. The professor puts forward three points and then effectively refutes the opinions of the reading passage.

    To begin with, the reading passage argues that a group of people will possess a wider range of expertise and skills. However, the professor claims that some team members did not contribute much at all, getting almost a “free ride”. Besides, group members who work hard were not given recognition they should have gotten.

    Next, the author of the reading passage believes that people are more responsive to the task and able to devise creative solutions to problems. On the contrary, the professor argues that reaching an agreement among all group members is difficult. Thus, groups needed more time for meetings in order to reach consensus.

    Finally, the author states that a team member who has a voice in making decisions feels better. However, the professor thinks that some influential members would have a great impact on group decisions. If they go in the wrong direction, sensible members who try to warn the rest of the group may be ignored. As a result, all members are blamed for the unsuccessful project.
