Peer Editing Two Angles of Vision Descriptions Break into assigned groups. Log into your computer and open a copy of your document in Word. What is your biggest concern about your paper? (length? Use of figurative language? Improved vocabulary? Sentence Variety? Punctuation? Etc.) Type a note/question to your peers in a different color at the top of your document letting them know your main concern. “Save As” with Peer Editing of Descriptions in the title. Then, open the “Review” tab. Click on the “Track Changes” button so that each person’s comments will be recorded. Choose roles for your group based on each member’s strengths. Diction Editor – Click off of “track changes” for the highlighting part. Use pink to highlight all positive diction in the positive paragraph. Use yellow to highlight all negative diction in the negative paragraph. Use green to highlight any choices that are “off” in either paragraph. Click on “track changes” and make any other comments (punctuation, answering the writer’s question, etc.). You can also use the “New Comment” button. Figurative Language Editor – Study your peer’s paragraphs for examples of figurative language. Each paragraph should have multiple examples. Label each example using “New Comment.” If the writer doesn’t seem to have enough, suggest areas where they could include some. (Also, note whether the writer only uses personification and imagery, when metaphor and synesthesia would have been more effective.) Syntax Person – Use the “New Comment” feature to note the author’s best usage of syntax. Look for EFFECTIVE usage, not just exotic usage. Help the writer to develop a good balance of sentence types and schemes that contribute to purpose. Mrs. Bush has included a file with listing various types of sentences and sentences for reflection at solonschools.org. Also, you are responsible for commenting on the Overt Statements of Meaning. How explicit are these lines? Where are they located? Are they effective?
