Traditional peer editing usually has disappointing results: students trade rough drafts, skim, and return them to their owners without any relevant feedback.
Make student discussions about writing more meaningful by using groups of THREE! Two students discuss one student's essay in-depth while a third student carefully records feedback for the writer. Not only will this increase engagement, but it will also improve the quality of feedback.
