Our team consists of three 8th grade girls and three 7th grade boys. The two captains, 8th graders Kate and Sarah, have experience in making websites from previous years. The other four team members are new to the program this year. Having new members brought in a variety of ideas and perspectives. They were enthusiastic and eager to learn the technical aspects of web design. Having new members also required the captains to spend time teaching the requirements of writing for the web. This need to teach both writing and technical aspects caused the captains to organize themselves as well as their team members in order to accomplish their goals in a timely manner. They handled this task well. The differences in age and gender also brought different viewpoints and work habits to the team. The 8th grade girls were goal oriented and focused on writing their pages. They needed no prompting to begin work. Initially the 7th grade boys were unsure of what needed to be done and of their roles in the team. They waited to be told what to do instead of taking initiative on their own. As the year progressed, the boys slowly began to take ownership of their work and site. By the end of the year, Drew had emerged as the "leader of the boys" and took charge of the technical aspects of the site. Perhaps it was because he was a "first born" child. Research has shown that "first born" children often are very dependable, want to do their very best, and make good leaders. The other two boys were the youngest in their families. Just as many other "last born children" they were more laid back than Drew and waited to be told what to do.
