Peer Review due Fri 11/11


Quickly read one of your group member’s site journals, in their entirety. Then answer these questions, posting them on their blog. You have 40 minutes.

  1. How well has the author captured a sense of place, noting the change in seasons and the impact on the site?
  2. The audience for your site journal is interested web readers, so the journal should be written in a casual, engaging manner, and not read like a paper for psychology or business class. How well does the author maintain a relaxed, engaging voice? Provide an example to illustrate your point. Where’s a place that reads more formally?
  3. What is the strongest entry in the site journal? Why? Which entry could be stronger, and why?
  4. How well does the author analyze (break down into smaller units) certain aspects of the site? How well does the author synthesize (pull things together) the site?
  5. The site journal should feel whole, an organic unit. How well does the author connect the different entries, linking them together?
  6. What suggestions do you have for the author as they revise the site journal for publication?
