This in-class peer-review practice session is designed to give students some experience of the process before working with real examples provided by their peers. It should take approximately 50 minutes. The main aims are to consider what sort of feedback is most useful, what sort of language offers constructive help, and how to go about providing feedback to avoid editing an entire piece of writing.
You should hand out copies of the sample Essay For Feedback – Peer Review Exercise and the Giving Effective Feedback – Peer Review – Student Handout documents.
