Blog Post #3

All of these videos and slideshow had the same thing in common, teaching us how to participate in a peer review. These videos were nice and concise and were very easy to understand, I could use them in my future classroom! In the slideshow Peer Edit With Perfection and the video What is Peer Editing? I learned more of what a peer review entails and that the three steps you need to complete while doing a peer review are to give the paper compliments, to give your peer suggestions and to correct anything you think needs to be corrected. 

I also learned what not to do while in a peer review from the video Writing Peer Review Top 10 Mistakes., which was very enjoyable and the children were so funny! You should not be rude while giving your review, you need to be specific while giving your corrections, not to be distracted while giving your reviews and to not take your peers corrections negativity. They are just trying to help! 

Peer reviewing is a great way to help with the writing process, especially in children. It helps them get different ideas for their own papers and helps them get feedback on their papers to make them better.

  1. Enjoyed reading this post. You summarized each video well. I agree you should be focused on the paper you are editing and not what everyone else is doing. This post is very well done.


  2. Good post. Good job adding working links and alt/title modifiers to your picture.
