Revisiting Peer Review: Critical Reflections on a Pedagogical Practice--February 5, 2016

Sunday, December 6, 2015 - 8:00pm
full name / name of organization: 
Phoebe Jackson; Christopher Weaver

For an edited collection, "Revisiting Peer Review: Critical Reflections on a Pedagogical Practice," we seek chapter proposals that revisit the practice of peer review. Broadly defined as students responding to each other's writing, peer review has been a foundational practice since its adoption from the process movement in the 1960s. Though a mainstay of the writing classroom, peer review still poses many unanswered questions for instructors. The aim of this collection is twofold: to examine and reflect on the rationale and the theoretical premises that underlie the practice and to consider the centrality of peer review as a part of collaborative learning in today's writing classroom.
