CoverRethinking Peer Review: Critical Reflections on a Pedagogical Practiceinterrogates peer review, a foundational practice of writing instruction, from both practical and theoretical perspectives, provoking discussion and re-examination of this practice in light of changing demographics, new technologies, and changing goals and priorities among teachers and institutions. Though long considered an essential element in writing and writing-intensive courses, peer review continues to provoke questions and provide challenges for instructors and students. By questioning and clarifying the goals of peer review, the contributors to this edited collection demonstrate how peer review can inform and enhance student writing and learning. In doing so,Rethinking Peer Reviewoffers a roadmap for revitalizing this critical practice for the 21st century classroom.
