:This week we worked on our comparative group essays. Later in the week we discussed how to per edidit a work and the were paired up with another group to share our rough drafts. Part of learning how to peer edit that is different the in previous years is the we are not looking at spelling and grammar mistakes but instead we are looking to see if the essay makes sense and if it flows in a way that in understandable to the reader. We learned how the brain functions and how each side works left for logic.
Often times when I am writing I know what I am trying to say so it is easy to understand , but when I go back and read through my work I do not always catch the parts that are a pit confusing.
I have also notice that working on a group essay the other members of the group also work as a peer edit. My group and I broke our essay into portions by picking three chapters from how to read a book like a professor and then having each person write about how the two summer reading books apply to there chapter.
Miss Josephine gave some examples on what to ask the writers and what to be looking for in the writing. Other things that can help to peer edit can be found at this link:http://writing2.richmond.edu/writing/wweb/peeredit.html
