Which of the following would be the most helpful comment on a peer review sheet in the section on “balance” in writing?
I did notice that in paragraph 4, while you presented opposing viewpoints (sources and your own logical ideas for opposition), the paragraph was mostly evidence. You refuted your Smith source in one sentence; I would work toward fully addressing every opposing concept fully for argument strength and for balance, so that your voice is the loudest one.
You have sources sometimes that you don’t explain very well; be sure to explain your sources.
Balance: Everything is pretty well balanced. Good work!
It looks like you have about 5% of your paper quoted. That’s a good balance!
When peer reviewing, we want to identify the specific place that works or is in need of revision and note why and how.

Why is peer review important?
It is somewhat important because you can get some of your grammar and APA fixed if you’re lucky enough to land in the “class brainiac’s” group.
It is important because when you know you have peer reviews coming up, you don’t have to worry about grammar and APA; your peer’s role is to fix those items.
It is important because you are in the unique position to be both an extra set of eyes, which is valuable in itself, and of having learned the same concepts and completed the same assignments as your peer.
It is somewhat important but only because it is worth many more points than a normal discussion.
Peer review is important because you are true “peers” who have written drafts based on the same assignment and because you can read your peers’ work (and have yours read) objectively and with weeks of experience driving the review.

After your classmate has posted a full peer review of your draft to the discussion board, what should you do?
Thank your reviewer for taking the time to make so many excellent suggestions. Then, move on to looking at your instructor’s feedback because peer review suggestions won’t help you.
Thank your reviewer. Then, read the review, think about the review, and take some time to see how you can best apply the suggestions. Then, if you have questions for reviewer or would like to comment on how the review helped you, continue the conversation by replying again.
Thank your reviewer. Then, read the review, think about the review, and take some time to write up a response to your reviewer expressing your outrage about being told your draft needs work.
Thank your reviewer. Then, read the review, think about the review, and take some time to write up a long email to your instructor about how much you don’t like your classmates commenting on your writing because they aren’t qualified.
Peer review is a tool. You should read, consider, and try out applying your reviewer’s ideas, continuing to discuss respectfully if it helps you. You should not be offended if a peer is suggesting ideas, and you should value the review as important and useful.
