  • 12. The ‘Why’ of Peer Review
    Why does peer review work?
    We see our writing ‘through’ another person
    We see how other students think and write
    We see others’ writing strengths and weaknesses
    We see new ideas and new ways of explaining ideas
    We learn to look at our own writing in a different way
    From Purdue OWL: Peer Review Presentation (
  • 13. The ‘How’ of Peer Review
    Ways you can respond as a helpful reader:
    If you get confused or lost
    Mark an ‘X’ in the text where you are confused
    Ask the writer to explain his or her ideas
    From Purdue OWL: Peer Review Presentation (
  • 14. The ‘How’ of Peer Review
    Ways you can respond as a helpful reader:
    If you cannot see the point:
    Ask the writer ‘So what?’ questions.
    In other words, ask the writer
    ‘What does this point have to do with this paragraph?’
    Offer more examples and details to the writer
    Leave the final decisions to the writer
    From Purdue OWL: Peer Review Presentation (
  • 15. Peer Review
    Read your paragraph aloud. You are allowed to stop and write all over your paper. The rest of the group is not allowed to comment whatsoever (even after you are finished). Everyone reads aloud first.
    Decide which color highlighter will represent you in the group.
    Decide as a group how much time you have for each paragraph. Remember, you will need time at the end to discuss.
    Pass your paragraph and peer review sheet to the left. Peer review the paragraph in front of you concentrating on content, not surface errors. Highlight your comments in your color. Pretend the author of the paragraph is nowhere near you. All comments/questions/critiques should be written.
    Fill in the “Editor #1” section of the peer review sheet. Highlight your name in your color.
    Pass left again and repeat steps four and five using the appropriate editor section.
    Repeat step six.
    Review the comments on your paragraph and your peer review sheet. Make a note of any questions you have.
    Take turns being in the mush pot of your groups for a couple of minutes and discuss each paragraph.
