What are some advantages-for both the reviewer and writer-of peer reviews? How would you encourage a reluctant peer reviewer?


Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. First of all, most of us hate to find our OWN mistakes! It is much more fun to find other people's mistakes! By doing this it becomes a type of "scavenger hunt" and some advantages are: to learn the types of common mistakes in writing, because then you can avoid these kinds of errors. An important aspect is to write a positive review as we like to hear "positive reinforcement" and usually tune out "negative" comments. To encourage my students I required at least one peer review per essay. Then, not only did the "author" of the essay have the opportunity to correct errors before I got the paper, but the reviewer also earned extra points for all the helpful comments.


I couldn't bring up SraJMcGin's response, so I searched Google under the key words "peer review high school" to get these possible sources:

http://www.swc.utexas.edu/highschool/hspeerreview.shtml
http://turnitin.com/static/peerreview.html
http://www.nwrel.org/scpd/sirs/9/c018.html

Unfortunately most of the articles are on higher level scientific review processes and there is a periodical called Peer Review.

Although both the reviewer and reviewee may be afraid of making mistakes, this is part of the learning process and part of growth. See this site:

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
