Peer Review
Why Peer Review?
The peer review process not only offers each student feedback on their own paper, but also offers them an opportunity to read a peer's work as an example that they might be able to learn from.
Yet, if you notice consistent spelling and/or grammatical issues, feel free to mention these so your peer can go back later to correct the mistakes. However, don't get caught up with editing line-by-line at this point; if you see a reoccurring issue, note it once or twice, and then move on.
The main purpose for most peer review sessions is for the peer reviewer to concern themselves with "big picture" items, such as the following:
Does the paper have a clear purpose? What about the thesis?
Does the paper present main points that strongly support the thesis?
Does the writer offer adequate support for each main point?
Is the paper organized in a clear and logical fashion?
Did the writer follow the directions?
Big Picture
Step 4
Spend the next 5-10 minutes reading the conclusion the paper and responding to the corresponding prompts.
Does the conclusion echo the thesis?
Thus, it is very important to take your time and carefully review your peer's work, for their sake and your own.
The Introduction:
Usually the first paragraph, or two, of the essay
Includes thesis statement
The Body:
The "meat" of the essay, sandwiched between the introduction and the conclusion
Each body paragraph should include a main point and support for that main point

The Conclusion:
Usually the last paragraph, or two, of the essay
Summarizes the main points
Restates the thesis
Monday -Thursday: 7:30am - 9:00pm
