Peer assessment is a valuable tool in the editing process and students love the chance to get feedback from their classmates.
After students have individually checked their own work, they meet up with a partner (ideally this should be teacher allocated to align with similar ability levels) and read their written work to their peer. The buddy then completes the review of 2 stars (2 positives) and a wish (constructive criticism on what the student can work/focus on for next time).
Both students sign their names at the bottom of the slip. The writer is the student who wrote and shared their writing, the editor is the reviewer who is giving the feedback.
The small slip is then stuck into the writer’s book.
These are also valuable for a teacher to give a quick assessment with student feedback.
