In order to do this, it is recommended for you to refrain from using a group of which you are currently a member for this assignment.This assignment is formatted as a discussion forum. You will create an initial post answering three specific questions about the group session you observed. Then, to supplement your learning about different types of groups, you will respond to the post of three peers.When creating your post, you will need to maintain the confidentiality of group members, so when writing you can refer to group members as “one group member/participant”. When referring to the group leader, you can mention credentials and refer to the leader(s) as facilitator(s) or leader(s).Please answer the following questions for Project I in your initial post:Explain the purpose of the group: why does the group meet? What need in the community does the group fulfill? What type of group is this? How long has the group existed?

Refer to the Spotlight on Diversity 8.1, page 386, when discussing group membership and racial issues. Using knowledge of groups that you have gained from readings or outside scholarly sources, discuss the importance of diversity in groups. Even if little diversity is present within your observed group, you must still reflect knowledge of diversity in your post.
