Product Description
Greetings, Earthlings!

Are you ready to feel "The Force" of a high energy peer review day? Without proper space ace training, peer review classes typically get blasted into one of two categories of time wasting hyperspace:

A) Joyless treks through barren planets of academic inactivity, marked by a "spaced out" adherence to frustratingly antiquated peer review protocol. Which typically translates to light years of lethargic compliance and minimal engagement where you and your students would rather be in hypersleep.

or

B) Warp speed transitions to off-task discussions of limited academic value, leaving the poor teacher to pilot the ship before an emergency landing. 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. To borrow a familiar adage of Neil Armstrong -- this Outer Space themed peer review activity will have you declaring "one small step for (lesson) plans, one giant leap for student engagement!"

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 wandering stars, providing targeted support for struggling learners wherever necessary!

This digital download contains:

+ 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. Think of this like your teacher guide book!

+ A sample 2 page student self-scoring sheet Google Doc you can edit to the unique needs of your students, grade level, and curriculum demands. Divided into six different techniques, including:
• Using Quotes Effectively
• Sentence Structure and Grammar
• Body Paragraph Structure
• Introductory Paragraph Structure
• MLA Formatting Basics
• Works Cited Page Formatting

+ A fully-editable Google Slides presentation with 17 slides, embedded timers, clear visuals for whole-class instructions, victory award banner, and 150 printables.

As you boldly go where no peer review has gone before -- this activity resource is about as trusty a booster rocket as you're likely to find to blast instant energy, life, and VALUE to your peer review days.

Enjoy this high-voltage trek into the farthest reaches of the peer review galaxy, and thanks again for checking out my TPT store. May The Force be with you!

- John
