Peer Review #1 Read your partner’s paper CAREFULLY. For the first peer review, pay particular attention to the content and organization of the paper, not as much to the mechanical details. Be thoughtful in providing your feedback. Fill out the rubric. Add suggestions and questions to the actual paper (hard copy or track changes). UPLOAD BOTH that you complete to Moodle.
Writing Center (Provide time for approximately 20-30 minutes per session.) 1. Bring a description of the assignment (syllabus, for example). 2. Bring all associated materials, especially the latest printed draft of your paper. 3. Bring specific questions to guide the session. For example, Is my paper organized? Does the organization make sense? Do my headings make sense? Is the purpose statement clear? Did I succeed in taking the first person out of the literature review? Are there transitions between my paragraphs? Did I appropriate cite my sources? 4. Request documentation that you met. When you upload it, explain how you revised based on your time with the writing center consultant.
You must meet with the writing center consultant by March 30th.
