ESSAY OUTLINES TO WRITE PEER REVIEWS ARE ATTACHED SEPARATELY. Select two classmates’ drafts to respond to. Remember to spread the wealth. Do not review a classmate’s draft if that classmate already has received two peer reviews. This will guarantee that everyone gets helpful advice. Use the advice given in Chapter 16 of The KU Guide to Successful Writing to write your peer review. Keep in mind also that your goal is to offer suggestions for improvement, not to simply identify weaknesses. Do not comment on grammar or punctuation at all. Focus on thesis, development, organization, and ideas. Remember to explain your response. If a paragraph grabbed your attention, refer to how the writer did this, so the writer will know to keep that strategy. If an area of the essay draft is confusing, for example, explain why you think it is confusing and offer suggestions for how the writer might clarify his or her ideas. If source information does not seem particularly relevant to the writer’s point, explain why you think so and offer suggestions for the type of research information that would be more relevant. Your responses to classmates should go beyond simply praising and should be well developed. Be sure that your response refers to the unit reading and video assignment and that it is well-edited and developed. When you respond to at least two classmates, be sure to go beyond simple agreement or praise and instead offer constructive advice. Make suggestions about the topic, the audience, and the ideas for addressing this problem. Add to what your classmates have already written. Ask questions. Engage in debate. Remember that responses that merely congratulate and praise do not earn credit. Aim for at least 150 words each for your responses to classmates.
