The file includes an argument essay, a rubric, and peer editing activity. for the novel Ethan Frome. Students choose one of three topics to answer in an argument that is constructed similar to the part two task on the NYS Common Core English Regents. Students will need at least 20 minutes to peer edit a paper thoroughly and then an additional ten minutes (5 minutes per partner) to discuss the paper and the corrections and/or suggestions made by the editor. Students are asked if they feel comfortable with the editor writing on their assignment, and if they are not, editors keep their comments on the peer editing packet.
