Two essays peer reviews | English homework help
For each draft,
1. Read the draft and review the grading rubric worksheet. You may write comments on how the essay could improve on each of the criteria, but you are not required to comment on the rubric itself. The points you assign will not be used to calculate anyone’s grade–the worksheet is intended to get you to reflect on various aspects of the draft.
2. Write a paragraph of at least 200 words addressed to the writer of the draft in which you explain one or two strengths you see, where you struggled as a reader, and how the draft might be improved. You should show you are reading closely by quoting from the draft itself at least once.
Write each clearly separately. If its in the same document, just add a clear heading dividing the first essay summary/rubric from the second.
