Peer Review Workshops in the Composition Classroom

Peer review workshops can be a refreshing and effective way to break up the monotony of the lecture-driven composition classroom and to motivate students to invest anew in the quality of their own writing and that of their peers. Peer review workshops focused on discrete writing tasks allow students to observe how peers negotiate the same writing challenges, discern shared concerns and patterns across their writing samples, and ultimately gather insights into the writing process through experimentation and feedback. In this session, Dr. Adam Sneed will use the ENGL1010 “Narration Essay” unit to discuss strategies for incorporating peer review workshops in the composition classroom. Concepts covered will include “low-stakes” prewriting assignments and other “scaffolding” techniques designed to prepare students to participate confidently in the peer review workshop as well as evaluative rubrics designed to facilitate and direct the peer review workshop itself.
