                                    How Can You Provide Meaningful Feedback to Your Peers?

  In the two videos and slideshow that was provided, it entails on how to give great feedback when critiquing someone else work. Each of the sources emphasized many of the same materials. Giving compliments, suggestions, and corrections, are the three important factors to use while peer evaluating.

  While giving suggestions it's important to look at the word choice, details, and organization that the peer has used. Also it is very important to be specific and to stay positive when giving the feedback. Evaluating someone's work is a very important process, so it's important that it's done right. In the video, "Writing Peer Review Top 10 Mistakes" is a funny video that sums up what not to do as far as critiquing someones work. This video will be great to show to a fifth grade class, as they start the peer evaluating process.

These sources were great to teach students to peer evaluate better. We as students are the best solution to give our peers positive critiques, as long as it's valuable.



  1. Porscha,

    I also think that this video would be an excellent teaching aid in a 5th grade classroom. It was a simple explanation on what not to do when peer reviewing, and I think it could be used at multiple grade levels. Is fifth grade the grade you plan to teach?


  2. Good! Be sure to include links to the resources/videos you refer to. Also, the source of the pictures you use should be include as an alt/title modifier.
