Unit 2 Peer Review

Thank you to those of you who submitted your first drafts of the Unit 2: Reflective Annotated Bibliography assignment. Just as we did with Unit 1, we’re going to use peer review to get feedback and guide revision for the final draft. Feedback on your peers’ work is due by noon (12pm) on Friday, 11/4. Thank you for sticking to this deadline, so that everyone has sufficient time to work on revisions over the weekend.


After reading & annotating this post, please go back to review the Unit 1 Peer Review Writing Workshop, which has important information about Peer Review (purpose, expectation, grading, Peer Review worksheet, etc.) that also applies to this and future peer review assignments. Make sure, also, to review the Unit 2 Assignment (especially the Reflective Annotated Bibliography Road Map), and the Unit 2 Writing Workshop (including the student work examples I provided). When reviewing your peers’ work, pay attention to the following:

  • Are all components there? What about all components of each component? (if not, what’s missing?)
  • Are the three source entries from different genres?
  • What could you add to make this more cohesive as a document?
  • Is it formatted well (accessible to your readers)?
  • What was your experience reading the assignment?
  • What did you learn? What were you confused by?

One of the best things about peer review is that as we become more skilled readers of others’ writing, we also can turn that critical eye to our on writing. So after you peer review your group members’ writing, go back and do the peer review on yourself. You’ll be amazed at the progress / revisions you can make!


Same as last time, Peer Review will be happening in Perusall. I have created “Assignments” for each of the first drafts, so go to the two essays you are assigned to, and complete the work from there.

There is also a new “folder” in the Perusall Library, entitled “Student Work: Reflective Annotated Bibliography First Drafts” (look within the “Unit 2″ folder): each essay is there. You can view all submitted essays, but you are each only responsible for peer-reviewing two essays (see below for your assigned essays). *Note: If you did not submit a first draft by the deadline (W 11/2 by 12pm), you will not get the benefit of peer review. However, you are still part of a peer review group, and are responsible for reading and commenting on your two assigned essays. Peer Review groups are listed below.

    Thanks for all the peer review happening in Perusall — keep that feedback coming!

    A friendly reminder that peer review for Unit 2 is due by noon (12pm) today, and that every student (regardless of whether they submitted a first draft) is required to complete the assignment.

    Looking forward to seeing the rest of your comments, and wishing you all wonderful weekends 🙂
