Step 5 – Discussion 6B – Peer Feedback
After you submit the initial draft of your essay through the Assignments tool, post a copy of it in the Discussion 6B forum.
You will then provide feedback to two classmates. Ideally you will respond to the person who posted before you and after you (although if you are the first or last to post you will have to pick others).
At this point, do not address spelling, punctuation, or grammar. Remember these are initial drafts that may not have been proofread yet.
Use the Peer Review Form to provide your feedback. The questions on this form will guide you to consider the paper’s strengths, as well as ways it might be made stronger. You will learn about what makes an essay effective through considering these points, and you may even decide that you want to complete the form on your own essay, in addition to the two essays of your classmates.
