Peer workshop (review two peers' cover letters)

timer Asked: Nov 29th, 2018

Question description

1. Open your peer's paper(in the file blew) in Microsoft Word, and at the top, click on the "Review" tab. There you will see an "Insert Comment" button. Read your peer's paper and use the "Insert comment" button to add comments in the margin. If you are using Word 2010 or higher, you will need to make sure you have the "All Markup" link clicked, which is also in the "Review" tab.

2. Comment on anything you feel needs work, but also give them positive feedback as well. If you need a guide for how much commenting to do, shoot for at least one comment per paragraph. The best comments are actually in the form of questions that occur to you as you read. For example, if you read a paragraph and really would like more detail, instead of commenting “Add more detail here,” a more helpful comment would be “Can you provide more details here? Where was he from? What does he look like?” etc.

3. When you have finished commenting in the margins, copy the Workshop Review Questions below and paste them at the very end of your peer’s paper. Then answer the questions thoroughly. Please think of the writer as your audience. That would mean speaking to them directly, using “you” (i.e. “you have wonderful metaphors here).
