Peer reviews are an important part of the inquiry project. Before this class I had no regard for peer review but after completing a number of sessions, it was clear that they were extremely beneficial to bettering your ‘shitty first draft’. One piece of information I found very helpful was from a classmate in a peer review:
“I would like to se more information and more evidence to back his question. The author already does a really good job, but if more was added, his paper would be amazing. I also would like to see more facts and things going mostly in depth with your question.” – Ulises
There is no doubt that some students find this aspect of writing difficult but I learned that it is far easier to take criticism from classmates your own so I found this exercise very useful for me as a writer.
