Experiment in Open Peer Critique

In an effort to bridge traditional and online writing modes, I am inviting (not requiring) my students who are completing a research paper assignment to perform a critique of one another's papers by using the Google form embedded below. This is all part of my effort to make the composition process more transparent and to help students be more responsible for their writing both as authors and as critics.

All of the responses to this form will be viewable to the public through this link. In order to respect privacy, students will not be required to perform or receive their critique in this manner, but I hope many will take advantage of this method.  The peer critique form can be filled out here or by clicking on the image above.
