Creative Writing Cross Campus Peer Review

In the spring semester of 2010, I participated in a fun project with Jason Clarke, who is doing fantastic work in educational technology. We conducted a cross-campus peer review in which his AP students read and reviewed the work of students in my creative writing class. Mr. Clarke's students used the track changes and insert comment features of word to give peer feedback on short stories and personal narratives that my students had written. They then filled out a peer review feedback form to help my students produce their final drafts and to help all students think about writing, editing, and revision.

You can check out all of the student's web pages 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!

Here is a video of my students talking with a Technology for Educators class at CSU:

Thank you Jason for everything you did, including writing this summary of the project.
