Written for the small group communication course, "Effective Group Discussion" combines the research findings relevant to understanding small groups with the practical tools students need to become productive group members. This text's implementation of research and theory in the systems approach framework provide students with an understanding of the scholarship in this field. This text is about secondary groups of all kinds: work groups, committees, task forces, self-directed work teams, and other small groups whose objectives include finding solutions to problems, producing goods, and creating policies. The chapter discussing different personality types has been expanded, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator explains how different personality types interact in groups together. The case study found in each chapter illustrates major points to be found later in the chapter.
