  • 1. Lehigh University TESOL Conference March 7, 2012Facilitating “Expert” Peer Editing Groups Ms. Candice Quiñones     Organizing “Expert” Peer Editing Groups and RolesSteps:1. Decide what type of groups you will use. (Formal, Informal, Cooperative Base)2. Determine how many students will go in each group (equal to # of roles needed).3. Determine responsibilities for each role & relevant content that needs to be taught.4. Determine how many assignments and what type of role rotation pattern you need.5. Assign groups and teach/explain relevant content.6. Assign or allow students to choose roles within their groups.7. Explain the role rotation pattern.8. Allow sufficient time for students to carry out their roles.9. Once sufficient time has been given, ask students to take the comments made by peers and revise their drafts.10. Typically, it is helpful to have one-on-one teacher-student conferences after peer- editing sessions to ensure the peer revisions were on target.Other Things to Consider: • It is helpful to compile a list of resources that students can use as reference for each role. o These could be websites, handouts, books or specific chapters or pages in a book that the students have available to them. o For my students, I put links on our online course management system to help with this as well as referring them to specific parts of our textbook that relate to their role. o They are asked to read over these resources before coming to class for peer editing.   1

  • 3. Lehigh University TESOL Conference March 7, 2012Facilitating “Expert” Peer Editing Groups Ms. Candice Quiñones     Description of Expert Editing RolesOrganization Guru • The key question here relates to structure: o Does the essay have a recognizable structure that is logically organized? o Is there a recognizable introduction? o Does the essay have a thesis? o Are the body paragraphs organized in the order specified by the thesis? o Do the sentences within the paragraphs have a logical arrangement? o Is there a conclusion?Content Editor • Does the essay fulfill the prescribed requirements for that type of writing? Is it on topic? (Tip: Check the assignment.) o I.E. If the assignment was to write an analysis, does it analyze something? o If the assignment required you to do research and use references, are references included? • Once you have determined that the essay is on topic, ask these questions: o Does the introduction have a good hook and thesis? o Are the body paragraphs limited to just one topic? o Are there enough details in the body paragraphs? o Does the author revisit the main points from the thesis in the conclusion?Flow Master • The main things to consider with flow or fluency are: o Does the writer transition well between sentences, paragraphs and ideas? o Do they use proper transition words where necessary? o Can you read smoothly without having to stop or go back for clarification? o Do they tie their ideas together smoothly?Mechanic (in general) • The key to this is knowing proper grammar and punctuation rules: o Read sentence by sentence. o Check individually for: § Spelling, capitalization, punctuation, verb tenses, subject-verb agreement, parallelism, article use, pronoun references, ambiguous or incorrect word choice and word order (among other things) • You will also be in charge of checking citations to see that they are done properlyWhen the role is divided:Mechanic 1 • Check for grammar issues like article use, verb tense, subject-verb agreement, pronoun referents, parallelism, word order, etc.Mechanic 2 • Check for spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and correct citation style     3
