Each round students receive a new peers’ narrative writing.
Color code each round. For example – all round one sheets are blue, round two pink and so forth.
You can choose to do this two ways; to not move to the next round until every students is finished, or have students move at their own pace, exchanging narratives and sheets as they finish. Read the directions for each part out loud and clarify with the students any questions they have about expectations.
Allow roughly 15 minutes per round – longer if necessary. Once a student has finished a round, collect the story and colored sheet ( I suggest stapling or paper clipping the sheet to the narrative) and exchange for another narrative and a new round sheet ( make sure directions and expectations are clear).
Students should look at 4 different narratives total. Some might ask to look at more (which is nice if students have left their narratives for editing, but are absent)
This activity is designed to keep students accountable for leaving quality feedback for their peers, It also gives them a sense regarding WHAT revision and editing entails. Enjoy!
