Transcript of P.Q.W.

Praise. Question. Wish. P = Praise Questions to ask yourself: What did the writer do well? Was there a particular part of the essay that you liked? Why? REMEMBER TO BE SPECIFIC. Do not say that there is nothing to praise because there is always something praise worthy in an essay, there is always something that the writer does well. Ex: I really liked how you used a lot of details about Medea killing her children. • Why is starting your review off with something positive important? *Remember that by citing specific examples you are not only telling the writer what they are doing well, but also you are also showing them where they are doing it well. Q = Question. This is a time for you to ask a question to the writer
about something that you were confused by in the essay,
or something that you thought did not work in the essay. Questions should start off with: Who, What, Where, Why, or How Ex: Why did you choose to write about transfiguration in a paragraph about impact? *Remember that you should only ask questions that, if answered, will help improve essay. A constructive question can point out confusions that may occur while reading, details that have been excluded, and organizational errors that the writer may not have noticed. W = Wish. This is a way to share what you think the weaknesses of the essay are without sounding confrontational. Saying, “I wish you would put in more detail about your childhood.”
Sounds better to the writer than saying, “You don’t put in enough details about your childhood.” Always start off these critiques with “I wish” or “Something to consider might be” • Would you rather read an “I wish” sentence or simply have your weaknesses pointed out by the peer reviewer? Helpful tips for writing a wish • Write down two sentences about the weaknesses of the essay•
Now change the sentences so they are in the form of an “I wish” statement. Tips to Remember: • Write at least one praise and cite a specific example. • Write two questions that will help the writer improve the quality of his/her paper by pointing to particular “gaps” in the essay. • Write at least one wish in which you address something that you consider to be a weakness, but make sure that it is stated in a non-confrontational way.
