What are my expectations from peer editing?
What I do not expect to see in a peer editing session:
Possible questions for the editor to pose to the writer:
What is the purpose of this piece; what were you trying to achieve?
How do you intend to develop the piece?
What is the form of this writing?
What are your main ideas in this article?
Are the ideas chunked and organized in a logical way?
What are the strongest parts?
What are the weakest parts?
Is there any repetition?
Is there anything you have left out?
Do you have enough detail/sensory detail?
Do you have a strong opening? A hook?
Does this piece of writing address the goal you set for yourself?
Have you checked spelling, grammar, and sentences?
Have you checked paragraphing?
Have you checked word choice?
Can the word choice be improved?
