Peer Editing Checklist

Whether your class is working on a story-writing assignment or a narrative essay, a peer review sheet can be of use. Expose individuals to the writing of others by requiring them to read and comment on another pupil's work. Peer reviewers can note their suggestions and praises down on the peer edit page, which provides specific spaces to write comments on mechanics, story flow, story development, and other suggestions.
