a thing about peer editing: criticizing someone’s writing is one thing, but doing it rudely is another that should be avoided at all costs. There are some people in this class who are highly critical and don’t give any positive feedback, which honestly says so much about them as a person.
That’s why, even if there is loads to criticize, I also make sure to try and find at least one thing I do like and let them know that.
That’s just my perspective.
While critiquing is important, it’s also important to tell the writer what they do well, otherwise, how are they supposed to know what they should continue doing?
