Peer Editing Circles is a collaborative activity that cultivates and laments editing and revision skills in our students. Pupils are modeling and teaching the writing process through exchanging phrases, paragraphs, and essays to be edited and revised among their peers.The activity also empowers the notion of "two minds are better than one." In this case, it is more eyes are better than the archaic traditional one-on-one peer editing activity.
Common Core State Standards have a heavy empahsis on using rubrics. The activity calibrates students with rubrics through the roles they assign themselves. The product's autonomy ensures a high level of engagement while having the spotlight on the students.
