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.
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.
