Great Job!  I see that you used google docs.  I think this was a wonderful lesson.  I believe that this was well thought out and planned.  I think this is something that all teachers need to do with their students, i think that the students think we are to hard on them when were grading but if their peers or classmates grade it and its the same result maybe they will try harder next time

I loved this lesson plan! It was very easy for me to follow what you expect the students to do, the resources they will need to use, and the time frame you expect them to do this in. I have never thought of using Google Docs to do peer edits before. Do all of your students have a Google account? With the form to fill out already on the Google Docs page, this will help all learners have a concrete guide to complete the lesson. A question I do have though is about how many peer edits will be done per paper? Because each student does two would each student then get two reviews to reflect on? Again, I loved this plan. It provides a meaningful editing experience and will certainly meet the goal of allowing students to use critical feedback effectively. Well done. Time spent reviewing 10 minutes
