Make peer editing and review focused and effective for your students with these peer editing checklists. Rather than shallow, vague suggestions, you’ll teach the elements of writing with focused tasks that challenge your students to find evidence from the paper.
Students will provide better peer reviews, understand the writing requirements as they analyze a peer’s paper, and be able to analyze their own writing more effectively.
No more feedback like: “this is good” or “write more.” Your students will learn how to give real and valuable writing feedback.
Each peer editing checklist focuses on a specific writing component.
20 different peer editing checklists to help reviewers identify:
- Identifying focus — What’s the big idea
- Rhetorical devices
- Supporting facts, examples, and details
- Sentence structure & variety
- Purpose & audience
- Word choice
- Introductions & conclusions
- Using ideas from various sources
- Works cited & parenthetical citation
- Embedded quotes
- Narrative Writing
- Persuasive Writing
- Argument Writing
- Response to a literary or expository text
- Opinion Writing
- Editable feedback form
