Revising with Partners

When you draft, you guess what your audience will think. When you revise, you can find out for sure—by getting a peer response. The writer and responder have different roles.

Role of the Writer

  1. Bring a complete first draft or revised draft, with a copy for each responder if possible.
  2. Briefly introduce your writing, and indicate the type of feedback you want: “I need help with voice,” or “I want to hear anything you have to say.”
  3. Read your copy out loud straight through.
  4. As the group responds to your writing, listen and take notes.
  5. Discuss any special concerns. You may want to pump up your beginning, or someone might ask for better support.
