Friday, February 1, 1:00–2:30: Helping FSEM Students to Help Each Other: Small Strategies for More Effective Peer Reviews

Facilitator: Dr. Juli Parrish

Do you have peer review fatigue? Do you recognize the value that peer review can have (helping students to become better readers and writers and taking some of the burden of commenting on student writing off your shoulders) but find that students seem just not to do it well? You can help them to do better! This hands-on workshop includes presentation of strategies for designing more effective peer reviews, a peer review demo by writing center consultants, and a chance for you to put yourself into your students’ shoes by trying out some new forms of peer review. Please bring a draft of something you are writing (an article, an email, a report, an assignment.)
