Doing Feedback: Third Writing Project

November 19, 2015

Because of the campus closure over the next week, I’d like us to conduct our peer review discussion for the third writing project online. Just as I did with our previous peer reviews, I’ve divided you all up into groups of three (see the listing below). By this Friday morning, you should be able to access your partners’ drafts online through Canvas. Between now and this coming Sunday, please take time to read your partners’ drafts and consider the reflective paragraph they have posted at the top of the documents.

Now, here are the details about how we will handle the new online element of the peer review:

1) I have set up working groups for all of you on Canvas. To access your group discussion page, please do the following:

  • Click on the “People” link in the left hand column of our course Canvas page.
  • Click on the “Writing Project 3: Peer Review Groups” tab at the top center of the page.
  • Find your group number, and click on the small cog wheel icon on the right hand side of the page. From there, you’ll be able to select “Visit Group Homepage.”
  • Click on the “Discussions” link in the left hand column.

2) This will allow you and your group members to have an ongoing discussion over each individual draft. My hope is that you will take advantage of this as an opportunity to have a substantial exchange with your group members, but at minimum, you should do the following:

  • Please leave one substantial comment on the discussion board of each one of your group members. You might respond directly to the concerns the writer brought up in the reflective paragraph for his or her draft, and you might also consider how well you feel the writer has drawn on the Foreword to The Bluest Eye as a starting point for the essay.
  • Once you have received feedback on your draft from other group members, please respond on the discussion board with a comment that indicates how you plan to incorporate the feedback and what other steps you plan to take in finishing your draft.
  • Please make sure you have submitted comments to your group members by no later than 5:00pm on this Sunday, November 22.
  • You should then post your response to the feedback on your own draft by the final due date for the essay.

You may, of course, feel free to go beyond these minimum expectations I’ve outlined here. Feel free, for instance, to use the comment tools to mark your partners’ drafts if you wish—but other substantive comments should be shared on the discussion board.

I will also post a comment on each your drafts through the discussion board by 5:00pm on Sunday.


Group 1: Kevin Sawyer, Kendyl Walton, Reanna Sherman

Group 2: Jungwoo Yun, Charles Yang, Hanna Foster

Group 3: Mia Jackson, Jessica Dixon, Laiken Harrigan

Group 4: Jamison Jensen, Aaron Compton, Erik Whitcomb

Group 5: Patrick Jackson, Jon Cooper, Ashutosh Aryal
