The Reflective Overview Peer Reviews

Bring a draft of your Reflective Overview to class today.

This will be your only in-class opportunity for peer reviews, which you will need to include in your Portfolio.

Bring as complete a first draft as possible to start working with. You should have at least 2 pages.



The RO needs to be formatted like an academic essay.

  • Use MLA style.
  • Include an introductory section with a "thesis" or statement explaining your overall plan for the portfolio.


  • Introduce the evidence you have chosen and explain why / how you see it connecting with the Core Outcomes we talked about on Tuesday.
  • I will provide Peer Review worksheets to guide you, so you'll just need to bring your drafts (and the NWWK text as usual) and something to write with.

You have some flexibility in how you organize your evidence. If you' d like to have sub-categories, for example, that will work with the purpose of connecting specific core outcomes with particular pieces of your work.

If you do choose to use sub-categories, you will probably find it works well to have a sub-category for each of the 4 outcomes and then include all your evidence for that outcome in that section of your Reflection.


Your paper needs to have an identifiable concluding paragraph. Wrap up and briefly summarize your points, making a final connection between them and the original "thesis" or guiding statement you made in your introductory paragraph.

Guidelines for Peer Response

NOTE: Printed drafts are easiest for your reviewer to work with, so please bring a hard-copy of your draft. If you need me to print it for you, send it to me before noon on Thursday.
