Blog post 3

Throughout this lesson I have learned how to properly conduct a peer edit. There are three important steps in peer editing. They are giving complements to your peers work, making specific suggestions that will benefit your peers work and making corrections to your peers work.
Students peer editing each others work.
The first step is to stay positive and give complements to your peer by picking out some things you liked about his/her work. This step is very important because it allows you to help out your peer without hurting his/her feelings.

The second step is to make suggestions about specific ideas that will make the quality of the work better. Some specific suggestions you can focus on are word choice, organization of work and use of sentences.

The third and final step is to make corrections to your peers work. During this step it is important to pay attention to punctuation, grammatical errors and spelling. If these steps are followed correctly peer editing can and will benefit all that are involved.


  1. You did a great job! The three steps on peer editing are very important and should be followed. I believe that staying positive when editing someones paper is most important. That is why it is step one. One cannot start by editing someones paper while being negative. Not only will it hurt the other persons feelings they might not want to ever write again. Therefore having a positive approach to peer editing plays an important role.
