Response Memos

Peer conferences will enable you to practice critical reading skills as well as providing your colleagues with valuable advice on how they might improve their drafts.   In preparation for conferences, I'll ask you to prepare some written notes in memo format, using the following checklists as guides:

I will base your conference preparation grade on these response memos and on your participation in conference.

I may also ask you for some ungraded responses to your colleagues' work at other points during the semester. If so, I will supply similar response checklists.
