Looking for printable peer conference handouts to get your students working collaboratively to improve their writing?
Peer conferences can be very tricky—it’s often tough to get students to actually offer constructive feedback or even stay on task. But with these handouts, you’ll have evidence of the work that your students have done, and your students will have directions and specific criteria to discuss for their conferences.
I have honed these handouts over years of teaching writing workshops and different kinds of essays and creative writing. I have found that they are a powerful tool and a necessary part of the revision process.
These handouts include specific questions for working on descriptive essays, cause and effect essays, short stories, argument essays, and literary analysis essays.
All handouts are similar in format to the one in the preview, but each has a checklist for a specific kind of writing.
