In-Class Peer Writing Review

In class today we’ll do a peer review writing exercise to improve your Instructables drafts. If you have not done so already, please start out by composing your Instructables draft and paste the link in this Google Spreadsheet we’ll use to organize the activity. I will then paste your draft into a google doc that folks can make suggestions on.

If you have written your draft, please review your classmates’ drafts. Do this by reading over the draft Instructable, then marking up your suggestions in the associated google doc using the “suggesting” feature (not directly editing the doc):


Feel free to raise questions, correct grammar/typos, suggest ideas to clarify the instructions, etc. Once you have reviewed a draft, put your name under one of the “reviewed by” columns in the spreadsheet, and move on to another draft.

If you run out of drafts to review, please write your shooting script for your project’s video, then check back for newly added drafts. After your shooting script is written, you may also use the rest of class to work on your project, and we’ll regroup for the last 20 minutes.
