Email Peer Review Group 3

Group 3: Nijea Wilson, Kristen Smith, Leah Touchstone, Sabrina Gissendaner

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.

      Im so interested on how you cross out things on google docs and draw lines through sentences? (:

      Please help me to figure out.

        Leah, highlight the text you want to strike through, look under the format menu, select “strikethrough.”

        Hey Leah, I was a bit confused on how to edit at first to. But all I do is highlight the text and click on comment at the top. Or if my suggestion is to delete something I just highlight it and hit the backspace button and it’ll put a line through it.

    I found this assignment more challenging than I originally anticipated and I am interested in the feedback I will receive.
