Reflection: Real World Applications Peer Editing - Section 1: Introduction


Many times after a lesson, students wonder if writers actually do the things that I’m suggesting for them to do. I try to reinforce the idea that published authors, even people who just write emails and newsletters typically go through the writing process (brainstorming, drafting, revising, and editing) before they publish and the ones that are most successful have asked for feedback and advice from many other people who have read their writing before they publish it. This is to help student actually think of themselves as doing the hard work of writing just like some of their favorite authors have done. They can be as great.
