Team Banner Project
The Team Banner Project was the first project we conducted as a team, and is also when we decided to name ourselves The Atomic Hive, the name that I nominated. This project was meant to teach us teamwork, and it was successful. In this project, we not only decided our name, but designed and build the massive 8'' by 12'' Wooden banner that now hangs above our classes. We divided ourselves into different groups that were in charge of different aspects of the project. I was part of the correspondent group. We were in charge of making sure every other group finished their part of the project on time, setting up the meetings with the HTHCV Facilities Crew, and writing the Artist Statement for our team banner. Pretty much anything logistical, we took care of. This project really taught me how to work with other people, and how to understand other people's points of views when we were trying to resolve a problem. I am very proud of everything in this project because all of us as a team contributed to the project, and in every aspect the project was a total success. The banner looks amazing hanging from our wall, everything was completed on time, and the Artist Statement is also really good. I wouldn't change anything on this project because, to me, it was perfect. All the group work through every step helped unite us, and we're the only team that has anything like our banner hanging from their wall. The Habits of the Heart and Mind that I used the most during this project were Cooperation, Mindfulness, Perspective, and Refinement. Every step required Cooperation because everything we did was a team effort. I used Mindfulness while writing the Artist Statement, if someone proposed an idea I didn't like, I had to think about why they thought it was a good idea, and see how we could use it in the Statement. I used Perspective when there was a conflict within the correspondent group, we had to see the argument from both people's points of views. Finally, I used Refinement when editing the Artist Statement, all the emails, and all the other official documents.
