One of the learning objectives for ENG 122 is “Demonstrate growth in their ability to critique their own and others’ work by emphasizing global revision early in the writing process and local revision later in the process”. I would rate myself a 4/5 on the mastery scale for critiquing my own and others work. At the beginning of the semester I was very confident that my writing skills were top notch and that I didn’t need to improve. After revising and peer editing other papers I realized that my skills weren’t as good as I thought. I used the comments that peers made to better my writing. I also followed the guidelines for peer reviews and made lots of useful comments to help others improve their writing. From the beginning of the semester to now my peer editing skills have improved greatly with the help of the guidelines and Eric’s advice.
