Reflection: The Power of Peer Review - Section 2: Peer Review Workshop Set-up


So, as you might have seen in my video of their discussions, there were a good number of students who were not prepared for today's work. While this was pretty annoying to me (I hate it when kids don't come prepared for activities like this because it leads to strange punting on my part), it actually worked out okay.

I was able to work with those kids who were struggling and/or didn't have a draft done to make sure they were okay to move forward. I had good conversations with them and was still able to listen in to the peer workshops on the other side of the room.
