Blog # 3

Peer Editing

In the video "What is peer editing", I learned that there are a lot of points to look at in editing a blog or a document. The point that was mainly made in this video were the three main parts in editing a peers work:
The three main things to check on when peer editing
1. Compliment  
2. Suggestions
3. Corrections
In my own opinion, I think a peer review is more effective and more influential than having someone who is slightly older comment on the blog or document. The reason is peers relate and understand better on what is said and what is meant to be said than peers who are slightly older in age do. Also, if a peer comments on a blog then there is a better chance of understanding what his/her point is.
A list of errors for peer editing

The slideshow "Peer Edit With Perfection Tutorial", was basically a repeat of the video before but it showed more detail. It included definitions like: what is a peer?, what is editing? and lastly what is peer editing? In the slideshow, It goes into greater detail about the three main parts of editing a peers work. The slideshow also includes a short story that had mistakes in the paragraph some where noticeable right away others weren't. 
Lastly, watching another video called "Writing Peer Review Top 10 Mistakes", I realized that there are a lot of different types of peer reviewers. Some are noisy, rude, loud, picky and some people who just don't care about what others say when it comes to them editing.
In conclusion I think that my favorite visual aid out of these three choices would be the video  "Writing Peer Review Top 10 Mistakes", It involves the kids for an educational purpose and also builds there creativity more.
