Praise

The first rule of peer editing is to

STAY POSITIVE!

– Remember, you’re helping to change

someone else’s work. Think about how

you would feel if someone were telling

you what needed to be improved in your

own writing…

praise1
Praise

Always start your peer editing with

compliments!

– Tell the writer what you think he or she

did well:

• ‘I really loved your topic’

• ‘I think you used a lot of good details’

• ‘I liked when you used the word ______’

• ‘My favourite part was ________ because…’

• ‘This was really fun to read because…’

‘We where all over my aunts house when my dog Riley was running around like crazy. He was chasing me around in circles. all of a suden I look and riley he was in the pool! swimming in my aunts pool. I couldn’t believe my eyes that the dog was in the pool. I dashed to the pool and jumpd in and swan over to Riley and pulled him to the steps. He got out and shook all over us like a sprinkler on a hot day. I was glad that Riley was o.k. and that I saved him.’

suggestions
Suggestions

Making suggestions means giving the

author some specific ideas about how to

make his or her writing better.

• Remember – stay positiveand be specific!

– Instead of, “It didn’t make sense,” say, “If you

add more details after this sentence, it would

be more clear.”

– Instead of, “Your word choice was boring,” say,

“Instead of using the word good, maybe you could use the word exceptional”

examples
Examples

Word choice – Did the author choose interesting

words?

Using details - (for example, seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling)

Organisation– Can you understand what the author is trying to say? Is it in the correct sequence?

Sentences– Are the sentences too long or too short?

Topic – Does the author stick to the topic or talk to other things that don’t really fit?
