Peer Review Sounding Board Classrooms grades 6 through 8 or ages 11 through 14

Flat Classroom® Project 11-3 invites classrooms from Grade 6 though Grade 8 to become Sounding Boards for project wikis. More information is available at Sounding Board information. You also are invited to join the Flat Classroom Project Ning and the SB group.
There are over 400 students participating in the current Flat Classroom® Project.  Providing feedback as a sounding board classroom aligns with the NETS Standard of Communication and Collaboration which emphasizes students learn "to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others."
Sounding Boards provide feedback on one page of the topic wikis.  Peer review is in the following format:

List 3 things that are very good about this wiki project. Write 3 paragraphs (there are how many sentences in a paragraph?) Consider:

* Content - clarity, quantity
* Communication - between the students as collaborators
* Wiki Presentation - design, use of graphics, layout

List 2 suggestions for improving the wiki page. Write two paragraphs. Consider:

* Content - clarity, quantity
* Communication - between the students as collaborators
* Wiki Presentation - design, use of graphics, layout

List 1 piece of new knowledge your group has obtained thanks to this wiki page. Write one paragraph. Consider:

* Content - clarity, quantity
* Communication - between the students as collaborators
* Wiki Presentation - design, use of graphics, layout

 
Becoming a Sounding Board classroom is not time draining.  These peer reviews take one 45 to 90 minute lesson.  This activity will provide an opportunity for your class to practice peer review techniques.  This is a guide I used with my students -> 3-2-1 peer review 

Be a SOUNDING BOARD!
