Peer Conference Preparation

  4. Type three questions at the top of your poem you want answered.
  5. Look what happens in “see revision history”.
  6. Discuss how to COMMENT on google drive.
  7.  …and now a word about partners—listen carefully.
  8. Share your poem on google drive with the person I assign you, and share it with me.
  9. Make sure you select “CAN EDIT.”

Peer Conferencing
  1. Read your partner’s three questions, so you know what they most want you to comment on.
  2. Using the COMMENT function, make at least TEN comments on each other’s poems in the margins.
  3. When you think you’re done, count your comments in the right margin, to make sure you have ten.
  4. Finally, answer each of the questions your partner typed.  Type your answer underneath each question in a different color of ink.

Reminder:  The only acceptable places to be on your computer today are as follows:
  1. google drive
  2.—bookmark it now, peeps!
  3. iTunes/Pandora/grooveshark
  4. NOTE:  If LAN School tells me you are any place else, you lose half-credit on your daily assignment, which cannot be made up.  Make sure you are on WCSD—STUDENT so your computer is visible to me; otherwise, you lose half-credit as well.

When You Finish Your Peer Conference
  1. Quizlet

Homework = None
