|Peer Evaluation for New Deal Essay
In today’s lesson we are going to give feedback to one of our peers on their essay and receive the same in return. The goal of peer feedback to is help our peers to do the best they can against the assessment rubric: leading to a great essay and the highest attainment possible. To achieve this we are going to use three steps. Read the instructions for each step and attempt to follow them as closely as possible. The whole process should take you between 20-30 minutes before you feedback to your peer.
Step 1 Completion
In this section you are checking to see if the draft has all of the requirements that Mr. Johnson is looking for in the essay. Check off each section as it appears:
Section 2: Translate the Rubric and Grade the Essay
Read over the essay rubric Mr. Johnson gave you on the first day of the assignment and go down the 10-point column (Mr. J has a few extras if you need them). Make sure you clearly understand what each descriptor is looking for by putting it in your own words. This can be handwritten on the rubric.
When you are finished, grade the your peer’s essay and justify your score in the comment section.
Section 3: Constructive Criticism
We can’t fix everything but the point of this process is for the writer to have some constructive feedback how to substantively improve their work. Identify three specific elements of their paper that you feel like if they improved it could lead to at least a ½ to whole letter grade improvement.
