Reflection: Students Prepare Their Essay Draft For Peer Review - Section 2: Editing Guidelines


Students are going to turn in any working drafts along with a final draft in a few days. I am hoping that between now and then, the guidelines I provided today will show up in their writing. Their drafts today show progress. Some are editing their topic sentences so that they are making arguments and not just describing. Still, most can definitely use improvement. Tomorrow’s editing session will hopefully push more essays in a better direction.
