Peer Review Activity

Respond to the two drafts you have been assigned for Peer Feedback, following these instructions:

  • Follow the Canvas Documentation to find the drafts you have been assigned. Note that you must have turned in your draft on time to be assigned peer review partners.
  • Write a response to each of the two drafts (Canvas Documentation) that includes the following information:
    • Check the title of the site, and tell your partner if it is appropriate and professional.
    • Check the site for the required content, and let the author know if anything is missing. You should find the following:
      • Two blog posts
      • An about page
      • A site information page
      • Working menus
      • Professional sidebar(s)
      • Two fully-developed writing sample pages
    • Add comments on the content of the site. Comment on at least three things your classmate does well and at least three things that your classmate could improve on.
    • If you notice any spelling errors, punctuation errors, or typos, you can mention them in your comments, but please focus more on the content than editing and proofreading.


For today, please do the following:

  • Revise your site based on the peer feedback you received, using the Canvas Documentation to find your peers’ feedback.
  • If you didn’t complete feedback for the classmates assigned to you, please do so immediately. Your classmates are waiting to hear from you.

For Friday’s session (9/25), do the following before class:

  • Be ready to turn in your portfolio if possible.
  • We’ll go over how to turn in your Project, and you will have additional time in class to work on your portfolios.

For Monday’s session (9/28), do the following before class:

  • Read Chapter 1 of Writer/Designer and be ready to apply what you read about the modes of communication in class.
