Post your Rough Draft here before class on Monday, March 18th, then, following the peer response instructions below, reply to two (2) other Rough Drafts by the end of class.
Although you are only required to respond to two drafts, feel free to read and comment on other drafts. Reading other people’s drafts will help you develop a perspective on your own draft.
Post a response to at least two rough drafts.
Please respond to someone who has not yet received a response, so that everyone will receive feedback.
You get points for posting the rough draft and completing peer reviews, but also, posting your rough draft counts for points toward your final draft, as do posting responses to other drafts .
