Why peer review

A vital way of improving as a writer is practicing understanding the mind of a reader. In this case, the reader is someone who will compare your work to the Answer Guide, asking themselves questions like "do I understand this?" and "Am I convinced?". Peer review provides the opportunity for your to ask these questions about work produced by other students on this course (it has the side benefit that you will also get some feedback on your work).

Remember, you are giving feedback to someone who is a student like you - try to be helpful (and not rude)

Only those who submit work can get feedback.
