Reflection: Student Feedback Peer Review of Arguments: Two Stars and a Wish Plus - Section 1: Peer Review of Arguments


I was particularly pleased that the students were being critical of each other’s work today, noting places where the argument wasn’t clear, and using the theme/rheme analysis in their language.  In looking through their drafts, they generally seem thoughtful and cohesive, which is exciting to see--they are certainly growing as writers!

Attached here are a few samples of their drafts from today pop argument drafts - flattened - 1.pdf--at this point they seem to be more focused regarding taking a specific position, which I'm happy with, since it was a point of emphasis to establish a clear position.  The second sample shows some strong revision regarding using theme to build argument.
