ENGL112 Peer Review Worksheet
INSTRUCTIONS: Peer Reviews will be conducted in class discussion forums during Week 7. Be sure to review the Lecture and the Discussion area for additional details and guidance. Please complete the following steps below, returning a separate peer review worksheet for each of the two classmates whose papers you review.
This assignment is worth 50 points.
You will receive 10 points for submitting your draft by the required deadline.
You will receive 20 points for each peer review worksheet you submit for your peers (20 points x 2 reviews = 40 points total).
Step 1: Post your Commentary draft in your assigned peer review group no later than Tuesday night at midnight MT. Hit Respond after the peer review directions and attach your essay as a .docx file. In your post, feel free to include any information you would like to share with your peers, such as areas you are struggling with or specific feedback you would like to receive.
Step 2: Find the two classmates who have posted their drafts after you (in terms of time) and download their essays.
Step 3: Read each essay and respond to the questions below. Please respond directly on this peer review worksheet, using a separate worksheet for each draft you review.
Step 4: Save each worksheet with your last name and the last name of your peer with the word Review separating the names (e.g., JohnsonReviewTurner). Go back to the individual peer’s post that included his or her draft, hit Respond, and attach your completed peer review worksheet. In your post, provide any additional details or information you would like to share that may not have been covered in the worksheet. Complete this step no later than Friday at midnight MT.
Step 5: After the Friday deadline, check back to your peer review group to find your peers’ review of your essay. Each student should receive two peer reviews.
