• Peer Review Resources

  • The peer review materials on this page have been developed in conversations with DU faculty over the past several years. While recognizing that every class, every writing assignment, and every group of students is unique, we also have found that a basic set of activities can be adapted effectively for a wide variety of assignments and situations.

    We invite you to build a meaningful peer review for your course using some combination of the materials here. We have highlighted several sequences that have worked well for DU courses in the past, and we've organized these sequences around the primary work that students do during a particular kind of peer review. 

    We are happy to consult with you about designing a peer review that works for your course or facilitating a peer review workshop with you and your students. Email us at wrc@du.edu.

  • Suggested Peer Review Activities

  • Our approach to peer review focuses on the actions students engage in during particular activities, whether during or outside of class, in person or online. Peer review is a huge category of writing and reading tasks, not just editing and critique. This approach builds in complexity through a sequence of activities, which helps students learn to be critical readers in specific writing situations and contexts.

    We will be adding more activity sequences throughout the quarter.
