"Through the Eyes of Others": Practical Approach to Peer Review for First-Year Writers

Abstract

Peer review is one of the most commonly cited “best practices”; the problem is making it work. The presenter will share techniques for transforming peer review from a “throw away” day into a tool that both leads to stronger writing and also improves communication, accountability, and responsibility. Inspired by Elbow’s Writing with Power, this peer-review process harnesses what Elbow calls “the most powerful tool of all: the eyes of others” with dramatic results. The presenter will share strategies, techniques, and student samples.
