View the following videos on how peer review works:
STEP 2: RESPOND
Respond to the following questions:
- How will you use this information to review your partner’s paper this week?
- What new things did you learn and are excited to try?
- What will parts of the review will challenge you the most?
- What do you want your classmates to know as they review your paper?
STEP 3: READ AND RESPOND TO YOUR PEERS
Once you have written your responses, you are to respond to two of your peers’ posts in at least 100 words each. Reply to two posts that have yet to be responded to by a classmate. If everyone’s post has been responded to, evaluate the ones with the least amount of replies. For example, if every student has at least one reply, then respond to the students who only have one or two replies instead of those who have 5 or 6 already.
Use your personal experience, if it’s relevant, to support or debate other students’ posts. If differences of opinion occur, debate the issues professionally and provide examples to support opinions.
To reply to a peer, click “Reply” under their post, type your reply in the text box and click “Post Reply.”
