Put students in control of the evaluation process by having them review each other’s writing assignments.
What happens when you take evaluation out of the hands of the teacher and put it in the hands of students? They gain the perspective of different approaches to writing assignments.
peerScholar is an online tool that lets students review and evaluate each other’s assignments. As students evaluate others’ work, they develop their own critical thinking and evaluative skills. And as they reflect on feedback from their peers on their own assignments, they get different perspectives and a deeper form of learning than they would from simply being told what good is.
Imagine the many applications for your own students.
