Effective and helpful criticism

  1. 1. What is effective criticism? Effective criticism is appropriate and positive. Effective criticism is objective. It should not be hatred towards an enemy or love towards a friend. Be honest! Effective criticism is relevant, specific, and to the point. Effective criticism MUST be constructive: how does it benefit your peer?
  2. 2. Effective Criticism is NOT…Only a few words/a lengthy explanation with no actual help givenRude, degrading commentsA yes/no answer to a questionAn attack on the author
  3. 3. Compliments Make EveryoneHappy! In effective criticism, you should be positive! What did the author do REALLY WELL? Tell them! Your critiques won’t be as overwhelming if you tell them what they did well too. Ex: I really liked how you used the quote from Walt Disney in your first paragraph, but I think your warrants that follow need some more explanations to really prove your claim.
  4. 4. Be SPECIFIC! Don’t leave anything out—spell it out as best as you can for your peers! Bad Example: Needs rewording. Good Example: Your topic sentence did not flow as well as it could. Try adding in a transition to help!
  5. 5. Point out the GOOD too! Let your peers know what doesn’t need revision because it was already awesome! Bad Example: Good job! Good Example: I loved your refuting point! You really convinced me to side with you and your language was so vivid in doing so! Awesome!
  6. 6. Quick Review! Remember the point of peer reviewing is to get a new set of eyes on the work to help EVERYONE succeed! Don’t give weak comments out of laziness— help each other out! Be specific, point out what is perfected, what needs work, and how to fix it to make it better!
