This spring semester I participated in a fun project with Tommy Buteau, who is doing fantastic work in educational technology. We conducted a cross-campus peer review in which my AP students read and reviewed the work of students in his creative writing class. My students used the track changes and insert comment features of word to give peer feedback on short stories and personal narratives that Mr. Buteau’s students had written. They then filled out a peer review feedback form to help his students produce their final drafts and to help my students think about writing, editing, and revision. You can check out his class web page by clicking here. The peer review papers are under each student's personal web page under "peer review paper." Yet another example of how technology can be leveraged to create unique opportunities for students to learn!
