Product Description
Hey Boo!

If your classes are anything like mine, I can say with reasonable assurance that far too often, peer review days typically fell into one of two categories:

A) Joyless summer slumps of low activity, marked by fruitless hours spent trying to coax students into meaningful work like the Finch kids sneaking up on Boo Radley as we slogged through lifeless and frustratingly passion-free academic routines. Days marked by long periods with more awkward silence than a Maycomb County courtroom.

or

B) Overzealous clusters of hyperactive students engaging in off-task discussions of limited academic value -- the likes of which might end up breaking Jem's arm! Lots of talk about Snapchat, The Kardashians, and pro football -- but not so much in the way of on-task activity and meaningful peer review.

But what if there was a way to use peer review day to drive meaningful peer-to-peer dialogue and spark a GENUINE LOVE OF LEARNING? Not to worry, folks. In the timeless words of the great Harper Lee: "People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.”

And in this lesson? Students will learn how to look and listen for TOP QUALITY work!

Change the game of your peer review with this step-by-step guided activity completely adaptable for all reading / English / language arts classes from middle school through grade 12. Using this resource, students hop between six different targeted improvement areas, reviewing DOZENS of examples of works from their peers while scoring points and adding themed items to their inventory as they go. And teachers can float freely between groups, providing targeted support for struggling learners wherever necessary!

This digital download contains:

+ 2 page walk-through of pedagogy and setup for a self-contained peer editing activity that will help students and teachers get a clear sense of writing strengths and weaknesses while still putting in meaningful work with minimal time wasted for the full duration of your class period. Think of this like your teacher guide book!

+ A sample 2 page student self-scoring sheet Google Doc you can edit to the unique needs of your students, grade level, and curriculum demands. Divided into six different techniques, including:
• Using Quotes Effectively
• Sentence Structure and Grammar
• Body Paragraph Structure
• Introductory Paragraph Structure
• MLA Formatting Basics
• Works Cited Page Formatting

+ A fully-editable Google Slides presentation with 17 slides, embedded timers, clear visuals for whole-class instructions, victory banner, and 150 printables.

Atticus warned Scout never to kill a mockingbird -- but I like to think he'd be proud to think of this peer review resource as a fantastic way to shoot down all those hours of wasted effort in your To Kill a Mockingbird lesson planning while adding energy, life, and VALUE to your peer review days. Again, to quote Harper Lee: this student-centered classroom review activity is designed with your kids in mind. EMPOWERING them by "paying the highest tribute you can pay a man. We trust [them] to do right. It's that simple.”
