Staying positive, giving detailed suggestions, and making the proper corrections were the main themes of the peer editing videos assigned. A big thing that stuck out to me while watching the videos was the approach of staying positive. Peer editing can be a touchy process, but staying positive is a great way to alleviate some of the stress of it. I can personally attest to being raked over the coals by negative peer editors, and I immediately became defensive.
Peer editing my group-mates was great practice. I have to give a shout out to my two group members Eric and Cameron for having some great insight so far on the topics we have covered in the class. I chose to e-mail both of them after I peer edited one of their posts. I chose this method because I feel like the process of editing another's work is best done privately. If done privately I believe one can make a more personal connection with the person they are editing. I feel like it can be more of an informative discussion between the two parties, rather than a public display of what the writer did wrong.
