Blog Post #3

How Can You Provide Meaningful Feedback to Your Peers?

     I have learned that peer editing is working with someone your age to improve their writing. This is useful in EDM310 because we do a lot of writing in our blog posts, and getting feedback from the people in our classes is a great way for everyone to learn. When you peer edit someone's writing, it is important to stay positive and give suggestions and corrections according to this slideshow.

     It's important to be polite when you're giving suggestions because you don't want it to seem like you're trying to overpower that person or be better than they are. Everyone has to realize that they are equals, and you're discussing their post as adults. Getting suggestions from people your own age is good because they may notice errors or think of words to add that don't even cross your mind. When making suggestions and corrections, be sure that you are specific in what needs to be fixed to avoid any confusion. In addition, be sure to look for spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and grammar errors while editing.


  1. Good job adding a working link and a picture with alt and title modifiers. However, I feel like you could have talked a little bit more about the videos you watched.

  2. Hi Laura! I love your view on feedback. It is vital that we receive feedback to ensure that our writing is quality and thorough. Good ideas, I just wish there would have been a picture with this post. Can't wait to read some of your other posts!
