Reflection: Trust and Respect The Most "Important" Lesson: Genetics Poetry - Section 5: Guided Practice - The Importance of Peer Editing


My students really took hold of this assignment and invested themselves in their creative writing endeavors, but I was more pleased with their willingness to offer constructive feedback to their peers during the peer editing session.  I was pleasantly surprised by the analysis and communication skills that were demonstrated during the collaborative peer editing group session. Students went above and beyond my expectations and it has really motivated myself to continue to push the envelope with cross-curricular lesson plans!
