Peer Review Guide – L6 Critical Exposition

[INFORMATION TO BE UPDATED – DO NOT USE]

Peer-Reviewer 1: Provide feedback in three levels:

Macro – What is your overall response/impression to the paper? Is it engaging? Do the ideas all work together in a consistent and logical manner?

Messo – Focus on the relationship of paragraph to paragraph: are there clear connections and a developing line of thought? Has the author provided appropriate sign-posts, transitions, and shifts to help guide readers through the ideas?

Micro – Focus on the writing-level elements of the review, particularly matters of voice and flow, and provide feedback to the author about those issues.

[You need to respond to this project in audio form. Record your comments for each of the three levels and send the author a copy of your comments. The author will need to submit the audio file (via Canvas/email with his/her paper.]

Peer-Reviewer 2: Read through all the written documents like an editor. Mark all writing-level mishaps, make notes about confusing sentences, offer alternatives to word selection, and the like. Feel free to comment on content issues as well, but this is a writing-level approach to the text.
* There should be marks on their drafts when finished.
* Be sure to initial the draft reviewed.

Note: Peer-Reviewers 2 & 3 are performing the same task, but the doubling-up should help catch more of the basic writing, grammar, spelling, and punctuation issues.
