Make peer editing and review focused and effective for your students with these comment task sheets.
Rather than using checklists that often result in shallow, vague suggestions, teach the elements of writing with focused tasks that challenge your students to find evidence from the paper.
Students will provide better peer reviews, understand the writing requirements as they analyze a peer’s paper, and be able to analyze their own writing more effectively.
Each task sheet focuses on a specific writing component.
