Peer Review Guidelines for Assignment 3
You will work in the discussion area in groups of three, each person reading and providing feedback on the other two peoples' papers. Locate the group with your name in the group's title. Enter that discussion group, and click on Reply to Topic. Copy and paste the text of your draft into the discussion group. Each group member should read the other two essays posted in the group. First, read the essay completely without stopping. Then, use the Peer Review Form below as a guide to provide feedback for your classmates. Click on Reply to Topic and post your peer review in the same discussion group. You receive 5 points for writing the peer reviews for your classmates.
The peer review form is based on the rubric I will use to grade the essay. Time is limited (for your response and for the author's revision), so concentrate on the most important ways the draft could be improved. Be specific in your responses, explaining what you don't understand, and in your suggestions for revision. And, as much as you can, explain why you're making particular suggestions. Try describing what you see or hear in the paper--what you see as the main point, what you see as the organizational pattern. Identify what's missing, what needs to be explained more fully. Also identify what can be cut. Be honest, but polite and constructive, in your response. The Peer Review Form is brief and to the point, so feel free to elaborate on areas that might help your classmates create a better essay.
Are there spelling, punctuation and
capitalization errors that distract?
