Peer Feedback Groups

Work Time

Read and give feedback on initial essay drafts. Before you begin, review the Informational Writing Rubric. Then follow the subsequent writing group protocol.

  • One group member, the writer, reads his or her own paper aloud.
  • Other group members take notes or write down comments and questions without interruption.
  • Group members share comments and questions, focusing on how the writer could achieve a top score on the rubric. The writer notes group members’ ideas but does not respond until everyone has shared.
  • The writer responds and asks question about the group members’ comments.
  • The group repeats the process for each group member.
