How can I use peer-critique to help students create beautiful work?
I introduced my students to the power of peer critique by showing them a series of butterfly and animal drawings that elementary students had taken through several drafts with feedback from their peers. I wanted my students to see what these youngsters had accomplished with the help of their peers, and not a single adult’s advice. Perhaps this would led them to realize that there were 33 other people in the room that could give them varying insights, perspectives and ideas on their evolving work.
