Team members were enthusiastic about the project from the beginining. They selected their topic and divided the sections (past, present, and future) and began their research. The collaborated with each other when searching for different items to include, as in finding a picture that might work perfectly in another team member's page.
When one of the team members would be absent, the others would continue their work and supported the absent member when they returned to school.
Time was a limitation as the coach only sees these students twice a week. The students worked in the evenings on some of the research in order to complete the project.
There is not much diversity in rural schools in West Virginia. This applied to this team. All three team members were from Christian households with education being important in their homes. None of the students were living at poverty level. They are middle class families for this area, but probably drop when compared to incomes across the nation.
