peer review

My teacher wants to know how I would encourage a reluctant peer reviewer? I am not sure what she means. Why would anyone not want to have a peer review thier work?

The purpose of peer review is to give both students an opportunity to gain insight in writing style and syntax without formal instruction. Sometimes it is beneficial to read an essay written on the same topic from a different perspective. It also can help to see how other people express similar ideas.

As you edit your classmate’s paper, you are giving suggestions within the other student’s learning level and when you receive your paper back, you get feedback as to how readable your paper is and error that stand out.

For the reluctant peer reviewer I’d encourage you to glean from every paper you read. You will find different perspectives, vocabulary, and organizational tools that you can use in future papers. Everything you read becomes a part of you. What you do with it is up to you. Enjoy the process.

… 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.
