Peer Review for Project 1

Hand-drawn icon of a pennant-shaped flagWork Required
Submit a draft of your cover memo and bio statement, and then provide peer review feedback to the two students you have been assigned.

By 11:59 PM on July 7, post your rough draft:

  • Go to Discussions in Canvas, and choose the "Project 1 Peer Review" discussion.
  • Post a reply to the Discussion that includes the following information in the body of the message:
    • Tell your readers who you are writing for/where you imagine the bio will appear (e.g., on an fire engine manufacturer’s website).
    • Ask your readers to look at anything you are trying to improve. Let them know the kind of advice you need.
    • If relevant, explain anything else you want your readers to know.
  • Attach your bio to the Discussion message. Be sure your file is a *.doc, *.docx, or *.pdf file so that your classmates can open the file.

By 11:59 PM on July 8, respond to two drafts:

  • Follow the Canvas Documentation to find the drafts you have been assigned. Note that peer review partners will be automatically assigned by 12:30 AM on July 8.
  • Write a response to each of the two drafts (Canvas Documentation) that includes the following information:
    • Check the title of the document, and tell your partner if it is clear and effective.
    • If you notice any spelling errors, punctuation errors, or typos, you can mention them in your comments, but please focus more on the content than editing and proofreading.
    • Compare the document to the requirements in the rubric:
      • Is there a complete bio statement?
      • Does the bio discusses interest in ethical and/or intercultural and global issues?
      • Is there a cover memo that provides background on the project?
      • How well does the bio statement incorporate visual elements?
    • Add comments on the content of the draft. Comment on at least three things your classmate does well and at least three things that your classmate could improve on.

After 12:01 AM on July 9, revise your draft:

  • Use the Canvas Documentation to find your peers’ feedback.
  • Revise your draft based on the peer feedback you received.
