Peer Review and Revision

Goal: Peer review of Extreme Sports Essays and some time for revision.

Peer review with the scoring guide on your essay document.
Writing Groups
Revision Time

Things to watch out for in your essay:

  • Do not number or label your paragraphs. 
  • You can use the word "I" but see if you can avoid it. Try to find other ways of saying the same thing without using "I."
  • No huge quotes. Quote only a few words or a sentence at most. Longer than that and you should be paraphrasing or summarizing. (See post below from Wednesday.)
  • Make sure your name, date and period are filled out at the top of your essay.
