For your peer review, please answer these questions about your peerâ€™s writing. If the answer to the
question is unclear, then please give your peer some concrete feedback about what is unclear in his/ her
writing. In addition to answering these questions, please also make some in-text comments about your
peerâ€™s writing. Offer comments about paragraph and sentence structure, the flow of ideas, word choice,
etc. Let your peer know if you are having trouble following his/her ideas, and (to the extent possible)
offer suggestions for improvement.
