Reflection: Conferencing A Peer Editing Session - Section 2: Peer Editing Session


I have engaged students in this type of small group discussions throughout the year. It is difficult to see major progress. Students did start this school year with little to no experience engaging in discussions. By this time in the school year, I can see some fruits of this labor. For instance, these two students are actually talking about each other’s papers, challenging each other and defending certain points. Their discussion still doesn’t fully qualify as an academic discussion, but they are certainly paying attention to and making the type of comments I expect them to make.
