Product Description
Welcome, Gladiators!

Like Rome, well written essays are never built in a day. But without proper "aqueducts" of support, peer review classes typically crumble into one of two categories of disarray:

A) Joyless treks through educational ruins, marked by a "dead language" adherence to frustratingly antiquated academic routines. Days of vacant stares from stoic faces where your students give your lesson plan a devastating "thumbs down" that would make even Cicero blush.

or

B) Wild displays of off-task discussions of limited academic value, leaving the poor teacher to fiddle as the classroom slowly burns. Lots of talk about Snapchat, The Kardashians, and pro football -- but not so much in the way of on-task activity and meaningful peer review.

But what if there was a way to use peer review day to drive meaningful peer-to-peer dialogue and spark a GENUINE LOVE OF LEARNING? Not to worry, folks. In the immortal words of Julius Caesar -- this Gladiator themed peer review activity will have you declaring victory over dull lesson plans, with a rousing battle cry of "I came. I saw. I conquered."

Change the game of your peer review with this step-by-step guided activity completely adaptable for all reading / English / language arts classes from middle school through grade 12. Using this resource, students hop between six different targeted improvement areas, reviewing DOZENS of examples of works from their peers while scoring points and adding themed items to their inventory as they go. And teachers can drift freely between groups like tumbleweed, providing targeted support for struggling learners wherever necessary!

+ 2 page walk-through of pedagogy and setup for a self-contained peer editing activity that will help students and teachers get a clear sense of writing strengths and weaknesses while still putting in meaningful work with minimal time wasted for the full duration of your class period.
