Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? When teachers assign projects on which students must work together, the students learn much more effectively than when they are asked to work alone on projects. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

It is critically important that we complete assignments in order to reach a goal. Certainly, the quality of the work depends on the individual involved. In my opinion, I completely agree with the statement and I will explore the reasons why I feel this way. To begin with, teamwork has the advantage of having different ideas, thus, sharing a considerable variety of information about a specific topic. Additionally, by performing schoolhold tasks in a group students might be able to ask for help when if required. My own experience is a compelling example of this. About five years ago, when I was on high school I should have to attend a high skill-demanding project for the Electronics Course. However, due to an unexpected event in my family, I was not able to study the themes of the class, not even skimmed to textbook. Fortunately, three of my schoolmates were able to help me and to explained me in a very detailed way all the needed information in order to carry on the assignment. They putted on my shoes and understood the situation, so they decided to cover me in some specific tasks of the work. Undoubtedly, whether this assignment would have been an individual one, I would have been in serious problems. Furthermore, doing assignments together might led a group of workers to accomplish a project in a more effective way which is a crucial feature on jobs. For instance, two years ago, when I worked for a food's company I experienced the mentioned before. I ordered to a group of electricians to fix a great number of lamps in the plant. I thought that it was a good idea to assign them on different areas of the factory. The electricians had to repair an equal number of lamps each one. Thereafter, I realized that I had taken a wrong decision because the required work should have been accomplished by at least three people in order to complete the assignment before the deadline ruled by the boss. Consequently, I changed the way of work and I redistributed the workers in bigger groups and certainly, they carried on the repairment more quickly.
