Reflection: Conferencing Great Writers Need an Editor - Section 2: Guiding the Learning


I've used many forms of peer evaluation and have been assessing them this year to determine which is the most helpful to a peer student. I have found that they need a form to write their thoughts and comments and that when they are prompted these become more beneficial. I have modeled this a lot this year and am seeing improvements, especially with my emphasis on giving specific, descriptive advice.

Here's a video of my review of two forms of editing used by student groups.
