Peer Feedback

In my seminar class, the students have a paper due during finals week. Last week I made them do 10-minute presentations on what they've done so far, and I make everyone in the class comment on all the presentations. The directions that I gave about comments was that we're all trying to help the presenter to write a really good paper. Most of the comments are pretty good. They make astute points about organization, about having a strong thesis statement, about choosing examples well.

Some are a bit odd, though.
