By Michelle Trim

Published by Longman

Published Date: Jun 13, 2006

Description

This helpful guide teaches students how to effectively and constructively evaluate each other’s work -- a common requirement in first-year writing courses. Students are taught what to look for in a paper during various stages of the writing process (thesis, outline, supporting details, and so forth), and how to give the most effective and useful feedback. Different methods for practicing peer review, such as in-class, one-on-one, collaborative, are discussed with special attention given to online peer evaluation.
