Nancy Boyles does a nice job of "closing in on Close Reading"... teacher's role is critical... guiding questions ( essential questions), promoting authentic discourse, promoting inquiry and analysis.... moving otward analyzing craft, word choice, tone and voice is going to be a major shift for most teachers....

Practicing What We Preach (and Doing What We Assign) | Teaching | Chris Friend | Education | Scoop.it

The phrase “peer review” holds heavy meaning within academic circles, particularly within composition studies. If we want students to do legitimate research, we ask them to find sources from peer-reviewed journals. If we want our own curricula vita to look more respectable, we emphasize our own contributions to those same peer-reviewed journals. And if we want our students to help one another improve their own writing, we ask them to do their own peer review before submitting an assignment.
