Personal Statement Peer Review Group 2

This is the page for Group 2: Allyson Bruske, Chelsea Idzior, Leah Touchstone, Justin Trudell

 

Everyone should post a comment here where you briefly introduce yourself, you explain what your Personal Statement is about (that is, what’s the program you’re hypothetically applying to, etc.) and where you share a links to the Google Doc version of the draft of your Personal Statement and of a draft of your assignment memo.  Remember to share both of these documents and make them so anyone with a link can edit them!

You have until Friday to begin peer review! If you have a draft ready to share earlier, by all means share it. But you have to have a version of your Personal Statement up and ready for peer review by the end of the day on Friday. If you are late, I will dock a letter grade from your project.

To get started, everyone should post a comment in your group’s page where you briefly introduce yourself, you explain what your Personal Statement is about (that is, what’s the program you’re hypothetically applying to, etc.) and where you share a links to the Google Doc version of the draft of your Personal Statement and of a draft of your assignment memo.  Remember to share both of these documents and make them so anyone with a link can edit them!

To guide your comments, it’s probably useful to review the assignment again. Remember that your personal statement needs to be based on a real personal statement and that should be clear in the work you share. You want to offer advice and guidance about the effectiveness of the personal statement: that is, does it include specific detail, do you learn something about the writer, does it meet the requirements of that personal statement, etc. Make your comments right on your classmates’ Google Doc.

After you are done with your peer review, I want you to fill out this survey about the process. You should fill this survey out for each of your peers in your group by the end of the day Monday.

This survey serves two basic purposes. First, it helps in giving your peers even more feedback on their draft in a constructive way. Second, it helps me figure out who completed the peer review process as I directed. I’ll share the results of the survey with everyone on Tuesday of next week.

    Hello,

    My name is Leah Touchstone. I am a Speech Pathology Major (senior year) and I am also minoring in Language, Literature, and Writing. My personal statement will examine specific points of my passion on becoming a Speech Pathologist in the near future. I will also discuss short-term goals, and personal experiences that have changed my life dramatically.

      Hi Leah,

      You link is requiring access from you. I was able to share it by switching the settings to allow anyone that follows the link access, if you would rather try that. Otherwise I requested permission from my email as Jtrudell23@gmail.com

      Justin,

      Your personal statement is “view only” mode so I am not able to make any edits or comments.
