Blog Post 3

Peer Editing

After reading the blog and analyzing the other material required for this blog post I learned a lot about the rules for peer editing. The basic definition of peer editing is "working with someone your own age usually someone in your class to help improving, revise, and edit his or her work". All of the resources provided gave the same three steps to peer editing compliment, give suggestions and corrections. The main idea is to stay positive while giving completing those three steps to peer editing.

There were also more detailed instructions given in order to effectively peer edit. When giving suggestions the resources provided explained some examples of suggestions would be; word choice, details, organization, sentence structure and topic. When giving this suggestion the peer should always remember to stay positive and be specific. The last step to a peer editing is correction some examples of correction that could be made are; punctuation, grammar, sentences and spelling.;_ylt=AlAgerHmCeFJcTcHPGZFMiabvZx4?fr=yfp-t-901-s&toggle=1&fp=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8&p=picture%20of%20students%20peer%20editing


  1. Jennifer,

    I think that it so important to stay positive while peer editing! I remember peer editing in elementary school, and all I wanted to do was correct everything without giving any feedback. Now, I see the importance of always keeping a postive mind while editing. It helps the writer have confidence that they did a good job and makes them feel good about writing. Without staying positive, the writer would assume that his whole work was completely terrible. You gave a great defintition peer editing!
