Peer editing is when you constructively edit the work of a person the same age as you, usually a classmate. In the What is Peer Editing? video it states that when peer editing you should begin with leaving compliments so that your peer knows that there was actually something that you enjoyed about the paper. Let your peer know their mistakes but do it in a concerned manner, you should never correct a peers paper in a rude or disrespectful manner.
Remember, no on likes a Mean Margaret!
Peer editing is something I find quite useful especially in classrooms where students are learning to write paragraphs of information. Peer editing, if done correctly, can tremendously benefit the students. Sometimes children can't always see all their mistakes and and having a peer edit can give the students an extra chance to have someone else look over their paper before they turn it in for a grade. As a future educator, peer editing is something I will strongly encourage. I will also be sure that my students know the correct ways to peer edit so that it can be done efficiently.
