March's Resource Roundups will examine peer review. Peer review is a feature offered in PEG Writing and provides students with the opportunity to read and critique their classmates' work while also receiving feedback from their peers as well. The process of peer review offers young writers the chance to develop critical thinking skills and also learn how to incorporate suggestions for improvement into their own writing. Keep checking back this month for tools and tips on how to use peer review in the classroom.
When creating prompts in PEG Writing, you have the option to attach stimulus materials. You can attach either a file, such as a Word document or PDF, or a link, such as a YouTube video or other website.
