Evaluation Rough Draft and Peer Review
For your original post:
Post a full Rough Draft of your essay as an attachment.
Include a brief note for your instructor and fellow students that explains, in detail, at least three specific worries/concerns you have about your paper.
Be sure to post by the deadline listed on syllabus/schedule. The day this thread closes/locks is the day the peer review is due, which is not the same as when your own draft is due; your own rough draft is always due days earlier to ensure enough drafts are posted for peers to review.
For your peer response, select a peer who has not yet received a peer review and complete a review by:
Crafting your review as a thoughtful letter (that is, direct your response directly to that student, write in complete sentences, do not merely list, etc.) that includes an analysis of the essay’s thesis/focus, audience/purpose, organization, development. These are known as “big picture” elements, or higher order concerns.
Point to at least two big picture elements that are working successfully in your peer’s draft, and explain how so
Point to at least two big picture elements that are still concerns, with specific suggestions for how to revise
Point to at least one lower order concern (sentence structure, punctuation, word choice, spelling–or formatting or documentation), with specific suggestions for how to edit.
Complete your peer response by the deadline listed on syllabus/schedule.
