Product Description
P.E.P. stands for either "peers editing paragraphs" or "peers editing partners". This self-designed program helped to make peer editing logistics more streamlined and engaging. 4 or 5 "peer counselors" are chosen and set up in "PEP Talk Stations" in or outside of the classroom. Special tag board tent signage designates each separate station. While all students (including counselors) work on the first part or paragraph of an assignment by following a prompt, each time a student finishes a section you dismiss and assign them to a certain counselor and station. The counselor listens as the students read orally their first section, then makes small marks on the paper and suggests corrections. The student then returns to their desk, fixes any errors and moves on to the next section. Most students in my classes enjoyed being counselors, but flexibility allowed for them to add their name to the list or "skip this week" at any time. Will they catch every error? Probably not, but even my weaker writers heard other good writing and were held accountable to at least make one suggestion to their partner. This P.E.P. talk system worked wonderfully for me, and increased time on task and student engagement in the writing process each and every time I used it. This system worked especially well with my "Super Tanner the Grammar Dog" daily oral grammar program (see separate listing). Enjoy!
