To add to the student critique discussion:

I have sought to help introductory composition
students develop some peer-critiquing strategies,
and it has worked pretty well.

Plan follows:

For the first peer critique of a 3-5 page paper,
have students pick their own partners and direct
them to use questions from the "peer editing checklists"
in the course text (Bedford Guide 3rd Ed.) for a guide.

Then during student/instructor conferences, ask each
student whether the peer critique was helpful. Why or
why not and in what ways?

Then before the second peer critique for a second
3-5 page paper, ask each student to tell the class
what makes helpful criticism. Many students like to
be involved in the instruction process.

By the third paper the students have some user-tested
critiquing strategies, and will adjust critiquing
efforts to the time allowed for in class.

Until later,
