Reflection: Student Grouping Peer-Reviewing - Section 3: Peer-reviewing


I think there is a tendency in partnered peer-view to be too nice when reviewing because the student is concerned about what their partner might say about their own paper. Often by having students swap papers around in a group there is less chance of that happening. Of course it is essential that students understand what they are reading for when peer-reviewing and to make sure they know that they need to write specific comments in the margins.  I make a point of modeling peer-review at least once in the year, and to have students model peer-reviewing for each other.
