Informal Report Peer Review, Group 3

This is the peer review space for Group 3: Sabrina Gissendaner, Kristen Smith, Kourtney Lovett, LeeAnne Baumdraher

You’ll do what we’ve done all semester here, folks: Post a link of the Google doc draft of your informal report to your group’s comments section. Make sure you have properly shared your document– so others can comment and edit it– and be sure to do this by the end of the day on Monday! Late projects will be docked a letter grade.

It might also be useful to review the assignment again before you read and comment on each others’ work. A couple of key questions/reminders/things to look for:

  • Does the report/essay have an introduction that explains the purpose of the report, the event attended, the date and time, and any other relevant information?
  • Does the body of the report present an organized summary of what happened at this event?
  • Does the conclusion of the report include some sort of evaluation of the value of the event?
  • Does the writer keep in mind an audience who is probably not familiar with the event itself? Or, another way of putting it: assuming you didn’t attend the same event, do you as the reader “get it?”

Finish your peer review comments by the end of the day Wednesday! This is important because what I’ll be doing in the second part of this week is following after you and adding my own comments and suggestions, just like I did for the resume and cover letter assignment.

One last thing here: You will note that this represents the main “participation” activity of this week. The only other thing you need to be doing now is working on the more formal report assignment. I will have a discussion topic on that too this week, but my point is this: I’m giving you a lot of time right now to work on the final recommendation report and to finish up strong on this assignment, so take advantage of that time and do the work!

    This is a bit rough, but I wanted to get something out there. The bulk is there, but I think it’s a little too familiar. As a reporter, I think I need to take a step back. Let me know if you agree or disagree.

    This is my first informal report and there’s definitely some work to be done on it. My biggest concern right now is the length – I’m wondering if it’s a bit too long and too in depth? Anyways, here is the link to my (rough) Informal Report: https://docs.google.com/a/emich.edu/document/d/1T22YkLuKbUvBz9own_PwiPgSaSYRWjvOe3ErA-iYrg4/edit?usp=sharing

    I am a little concerned about the way my voice is portrayed in my informal report. Since it was an event that I attended, the word “I” was used frequently. I’m not sure if this is appropriate but I didn’t know how to avoid it. If you have any suggestions, I’d appreciate it. I also made a comment on my informal report if you all could check it out. Here it is:

    Thanks!

    Hi guys! Here is the link to my Informal Report rough draft. I know that movie night is kind of a cop out, but it was an event on the list and The Giver was SO good, for its own reasons. As always, any and all feedback is appreciated.
