Transcript

  • 1. Class 28 EWRT 1A
  • 2. AGENDA • Writing Workshop: Revision strategies: Your participation grade depends on your active participation in the peer review session.
  • 3. Preparation for Peer Review 1. Everyone should have two copies of his or her draft. 2. Everyone should have a copy of the peer review worksheet. 3. If you don’t have two copies of your essay, please go and make them. Hopefully, there will be a space for you when you return.
  • 4. The Process • We will work in pairs. • Exchange papers so that readers can follow along. • Each person will read his or her essay aloud. EVERYONE SHOULD FINISH READING BEFORE ANYONE BEGINS RESPONDING. • Readers will follow along as the writer presents his or her work; readers may circle obvious errors.
  • 5. Follow the directions under these additional steps 1. Read for a first impression 2. Evaluate the organization 3. Look at the beginning. 4. Find the thesis. 5. Find the classifications of the concept. 6. Determine if the classifications of the are concept defined 7. Find the types of the concept listed within the categories 8. Are there suitable examples in each paragraph? 9. Has the writer explained how the examples add depth to the definition(s) of the concept? 10. Has the writer compared his or her concept to another one? Does this help to explain the concept? Can you suggest a concept to compare it to? 11. Does the writer use images to help explain the concept? Would images be helpful? Do you have a suggestion? 12. Read the ending to make sure it successfully wraps up the essay 13. Assess the formatting and sources. 14. Give the writer your final thoughts.
  • 6. This is not an editing exercise; it is a revision process. This session is geared toward revision—not editing. While you may circle errors you notice in the text, refrain from making editing suggestions, that is spelling, grammar, and word choice suggestions. Your job as a reader is to answer the questions on the handout. These questions will help you help the writer to improve the paper in terms of organization, content, integrating quotations, and MLA style. If you don’t know the answer to a question, ask me. I will be happy to help you.
