    • Recorder: records responses on paper within small group and transfers to chart paper at appropriate time.
    • Summarizer: after each question, provides a summary of the discussion for other students to approve or amend.
    • Timekeeper : makes sure the group stays on track and gets through a reasonable amount of material in the given time period.
    • Spokesperson: ready to summarize the group's progress and findings to the instructor and other committee members/groups.
