This checklist provides guidance for students who are reviewing another peer's essay. It helps them focus on the basics, but also asks students to consider if an essay is "engaging" of speaks to the appropriate audience. Additionally, students are asked to provide a compliment to the peer in addition to offering a suggestion.
It's a great way to engage students in the writing process and to get them to talk about writing in a constructive and positive manner.
I have included Common Core standards for grades 5 through 8. This activity benefits both the writer and the reader.
