Peer Revision at Home

posted: 3.13.08 by Barclay Barrios

For first-year students in particular, you might find it effective to have them review at least one peer’s paper at home.  Students still in transition from high school are used to thinking of class work as “busy work” and homework as “important work.”  I combine these two by having them review one or two papers in class but also one at home, emailing comments to the paper’s author.
