  • Peer review of cover letters today - Part 2!
    Directions: Same as before. Get in groups of four. Download the attached Cover Letter Peer Review Questions, then fill them out in a thorough and helpful manner with regard to the cover letter you are handed. I WILL evaluate the review sheets and lower daily grades for those sheets that are not filled out in a thoughful manner.  Once you've finshed, have one person send a copy of the file to me, and print out a copy for the person whose cover letter you've evaluated. Don't put your names on the hard copy, but put them in the body of the e-mail to me which has the cover letter peer review attached.  Your group should be able to complete two peer reviews by the end of classtime.
