If you’re still prepping course materials for the coming term, or if you’re planning a faculty workshop or brownbag, consider using some of the free resources we have here on Eli Review. Our teacher development modules and open-source curriculum materials are useful both in the classroom and in the workshop:
- The Feedback and Revision development module lays out the research showing how important both are in learning in general and learning to write, specifically.
- The Designing Effective Reviews development module describes strategies for creating reviews and coaching novice reviewers to improve feedback.
- The ACT Coaching Curriculum has detailed examples of how to focus reviews on discreet writing moves, like using qualifiers for developing effective arguments.
The Eli Review YouTube channel also has a number of short, useful videos, like this one of Stuart Blythe talking about the differences between peer editing and peer review:
Finally, if you have questions about developing materials for your classes or for your faculty, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to work with you.
Good luck in your coming terms!
