Becoming A Better Peer Reviewer: How Can Peer Review Practice Help Improve teacher practice (Yoshiko Kondo and Scott Gardner)
Peer Review is an activity widely used as part of process writing. However, some teachers are skeptical of its effectiveness because of students' inadequacy in responding with helpful and constructive advice. Kondo and Gardner conducted a study to explore ways for the students to become effective reviewers.
