This is a peer review checklist for students who are participating in a peer review of their fellow students' work. It has been primarily used in an English classroom on argumentative essays, but can easily be used or modified for any writing assignment.
This checklist focuses on four categories:
- Argument (thesis statement and argument throughout paper)
- Evidence and Support (Citations, relevance, and analysis)
- Organization (logical progression and transitions)
- Language (misused words and confusing sentences)
The purposes of the checklist are:
- To give students concrete things to look for
- To keep students focused on the bigger issues in peer writing (for more productive feedback!)
- To keep students on task
This product is formatted so that two checklists will print per sheet for easy printing! You can also project the checklist on the board if you do not want to use it as a handout.
This checklist could also easily be used for individual self-reflection or analysis of a secondary source in class.
