Language Objective: I will provide quality peer feedback and begin revising my rough draft.
1. Bell Work: Read through your rough draft out loud and fix any sentences that have errors or don't flow right.
Next, identify three areas that you feel like your article (or your writing in general) needs help with.
For example: I need to make sure to cover all sides of my chosen issue.
Finally, turn each of your three areas you decided you need help with into a question for your peer reviewer.
What sides of this issue did I fail to cover and how can I make sure to do this better? Do you have any suggestions who to interview for this?
2. Peer review:
In your group, peer review the stories of two other people. Leave comments and suggestions on the following (Give the story a read-through for each.)
- What ideas could the author include to cover this story more in depth?
- Point out anything that is confusing
- Double-check the author's use and punctuation of quotes.
- Check for redundancies and suggest stronger verbs the author could use
- Check the effectiveness of the author's lead and ending
- Where did you stop reading or get bored? Mark that and offer suggestions how to make this story more interesting?
- Point out anything that is missing from this story.
3. Use your peer feedback to edit and revise your draft. Conduct any interviews or research you still need.
