  4. 4. Peer Review – ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY: Passing You will respond to each essay on another sheet of paper or on the back of the essay you are reviewing. Make sure to put your name down as the reviewer.
  5. 5. Instructions: Read all three papers aloud BEFORE WRITING (this is to ensure that everyone has time to respond to each paper).  As you are reading along, quickly mark any obvious errors or typos in the text. Do not offer advice about how to fix the issues; just identify them for now.  After you have read all three, please answer the questions on the handout as completely as possible (on the back of the essay or on another sheet of paper).  Do not just give the paper and writer the stamp of approval, or a “yes” or “no” answer—you will be doing your partners a disservice. When you are done, return the essay and your comments to the writer.
  6. 6. Get into Groups of Three O Remember, read all three essays aloud first! O Answer all questions thoughtfully. O Do not edit the papers you are reading (no grammar or punctuation). O We will work about an hour and a half, so plan your time accordingly.
  7. 7. Leslie Feinberg O Leslie Feinberg came of age as a young butch lesbian in the factories and gay bars of Buffalo, N.Y. in the 1960s. Since that time, Feinberg has been a grass roots activist and a journalist. Ze is known in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender movements in the U.S. and countries around the world. The lesbian magazine Curve named Feinberg one of the “15 Most Influential” in the battle for gay and lesbian rights.
  8. 8. Feinberg is an outspoken opponent of traditional Western concepts about how a “real man” or “real woman” should look and act. Feinberg supports the use of gender-neutral pronouns such as “ze” instead of he or she, and “hir” instead of him or her. Feinberg is well-known for forging a strong bond between the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities, and other oppressed minorities. “Everyone who is under the gun of reaction and economic violence is a potential ally,” Feinberg says. Stone Butch Blues (1993), Feinberg’s widely acclaimed first book, is a semi-autobiographical novel about a lesbian questioning her gender identity. It received an American Literary Association Award for Gay and Lesbian Literature and the Lambda Small Press Literary Award.
