Brief excerpt from interview: When [students] are going through the peer review process . . . what I do is bundle 4 students together. They staple a [rubric sheet] to their paper and they hand their paper to their right. Student reads their paper, reviews it, hand it to the right . . . so for every paper they write, they get 3 independent reviews of that paper. And it's interesting to hear the conversation that goes on not between reviewer and writer but between reviewers about the third person's writing . . . and they are educating each other because they are covering the material in different ways.
