Blog Post 3 Peer Editing
Peer editing is a helpful tool to students when it comes to writing papers and doing projects. It helps to get a secondary opinion before submitting your assignment for a final grade. It can involve reviewing content or just looking for grammatical errors. I know from experience that many students are not fond of peer editing. Why? Students can be self conscious about their work. They don't want their work insulted and they don't want their classmates thinking they aren't smart. Educators must teach their students how to peer edit correctly so they are giving advice and a review in a proper manner. Peer editing requires support of the work and also productive criticism. If one student does not go about a peer review the proper way, the other student may be insulted and stop listening all together, resulting in no progress being done.
