How can you provide meaningful feedback to your peer?
What is peer editing? In the video What is peer editing?, the author explains to us that peer editing is working with someone your own age to help improve, revise, or edit his or her writing. Peer editing helps students improve their papers or writings before they have to turn them in for a grade. I think peer editing is a great tool to use for students to help them obtain all points possible with just a little help from a classmate.
As I was flipping through the slides on, Peer Edit with Perfection, the author of this presentation teaches us that there are 3 steps to correctly edit a peer's work. 1) Compliments 2)Suggestions and 3) Corrections. She tells us that a good peer editor should always start with a compliment. Compliment what you liked or what you think the student you are editing did well in his or her paper. Second, she told us to make suggestions. If you think they should add a few words or change their sentence structure then suggest it, don't be a "Pushy Polly" as they mentioned in, Writing Peer Review Top 10 Mistakes. Lastly, you should make corrections. If you find words spelled incorrectly, run on sentences, or any other grammatical errors; you should correctly note that on their paper so they can go back and make those changes. When you are editing someone's work make sure you are being very specific where corrections need to be made and always remember to STAY POSITIVE!
