How to Provide Meaningful Feedback to Your Peers
What is Peer Editing
I first watched the short video called, What is Peer Editing. This video seemed to really help me get a better understanding on what exactly peer editing is. It was very simple to understand and actually know what she was talking about. Peer editing can be very helpful, but if not done correctly, your peer can take it personally. This video went into detail about the steps to take so your peer does not take it offensively.
Peer Editing With Perfection
I also viewed the slideshow called "Peer Editing With Perfection," and also got more very helpful hints. The video I previously watched before I viewed this slideshow were very similar with the main points that they gave. One of their main points was to start off giving compliments, and then approach the feedback. This way as the reader, you really make them feel better about their writing instead of just pointing out their mistakes. As a future teacher, this was also very important to understand so you learn when to tell them publicly or privately.
Writing Peer Review Top 10 Mistakes
This video was an example of how exactly not to do peer review! This cute, funny, video had several different scenarios on what would not be appropriate for peer editing. They did not start off with a compliment on their writing, and instead made the peer feel humiliated.
There has been many times my teacher has assigned us to peer review someone else's work and I have felt uncomfortable doing so. I wasn't sure how to do it in a way where I didn't make my peer feel like I was attacking them with corrections when I know that my paper wasn't perfect either. After reading these I feel like I would be able to successfully help someone. When doing my C4C, I haven't encountered any issues where I would need to correct them. When I do, I feel like I would decide then then if I should do it publicly or send them an e-mail.
