Pre-Workshop Workshop• A walk through the schedule... • (bottom line=”not necessarily complete but deliverable” for peer review 11/23)
Pre-Workshop Workshop• Some assumptions about peer review: • It is useful for writing at all levels • As a reader, you should be capable of giving good advice even on topics where you are not an expert • As a writer, you should be capable of receiving and acting on advice from others • The only way you get better as a writer is to have an audience • To get good advice, you have to give good advice • It takes practice-- more practice time than we have, unfortunately
Pre-Workshop Workshop• Step 1: Make sure everyone has contact info, etc.• Step 2: Everyone take a moment to: • explain brieﬂy what your project for this class is about • where you’re at on the project so far • what one or two (or three or four!) things you are hoping to get from peer review• Step 3: Gather questions/concerns for the larger group
Blythe, Grabill, Riley• Action research is... (273-4)• The questions that framed their research (280)• The data analysis process-- note that they can’t completely agree (280-2)• (Also, this is an example of rhetorical/ content analysis too)
Blythe, Grabill, Riley• Evidence based understanding of community (the consultant example and such on 284)• “Why genre matters” (and why this is tech comm kind of research) (287-9)• Stases matters (289-91)• And action matters (295)
