Email Peer Review Group 2

Group 2: Melanie Waller, Elyse Cawetzka, Ashleigh Swinehart, Jessica Kane

This is where you will do the peer review for the email assignment.

To get started, first review the assignment itself. Remember that you need to write three different emails in response to each of these difference scenarios.  For the purposes of peer review, draft your emails in a Google Document, being sure to label each scenario and to give each a hypothetical subject line. You also want to share a draft of your memo, too.

Now, while this is a short assignment, that doesn’t mean that they are necessarily “easy.” I think that one of the problems with the way we teach writing generally is we equate long assignments to “hard” and short assignments to “easy.” But when you only have a few words to get a message across– like in an email message!– every word has to count and work toward your purpose and anything that is a little off is really glaring.  So while I’m not expecting this peer review process to take hours (it’s one of the reasons why we’re beginning this on Monday and finishing this by the end of the day Wednesday), you do want to take the time it takes to give your peers useful feedback. Post your drafts for peer review by the end of the day Monday and double check to make sure you are sharing them so others can edit!  I will dock late or incorrectly posted drafts a letter grade.

Like before, fill out this survey for each writer in your group! I’ll share the results of this survey on Thursday.

      Hey Melanie,
      Did you have your email assignment memo for us to look at? I think Professor Krause wanted us to share that document too for peer review.
      🙂

        As I mentioned before, that was kind of a typo on my part. If you want to share the memo for this peer review, that’s fine; if not, that’s okay too.

          Oh ok, I must have missed where you said that. Sorry!
