Featured Story: Peer Review

Student Peer Review at SRSPeer review is a way to double check a scientist’s work - Did they use well designed methods? Did they back up their claims with evidence? Do they have good organization and clarity?

Engaging in peer review is a great opportunity for students to learn from each other and help each other improve. Peer review is also an important part of the SRS. At each SRS, students participate in a peer review session and provide both verbal and written feedback.  This has been a highlight for many students- as one student said: "It is good to learn from other students that we don't already know and just meet and talk to people of different backgrounds."

However, you don't need to wait for, or even participate in, the SRS to support your students in peer reviewing each others work. Here are some resources you can use in the classroom! If you are attending an SRS, using these resources ahead of time can help your students be more effective reviewers at the event.
