So I was looking for guidelines on peer review and I actually came across a website that I believe would be very informational. Oftentimes teachers are not quite so sure how to work peer review into a curriculum and that is exactly what this website discusses in detail. It includes additional sources and interesting tips to make peer review run as smooth as possible. This page is so in depth that it actually breaks down how long each step of peer review should take in an average class period. While this could be an interesting source when trying to factor peer review into the curriculum, I wish it had examples of worksheets or some sort of peer review rubric on how students should actually critique their fellow student's work.

I feel that this page is a pretty good guideline as far as peer review. It asks a lot of specific questions that I believe would assist students in sufficiently reviewing another student's draft. It also has a printable version.

I also found this website, which discusses a free online peer review tool for students and teachers.
This website also includes guidelines and forms for peer review.

I believe the information for all of these sites can be used to create a positive peer review atmosphere.

When I was looking at the printable version from the University of Richmond writing center - I liked some of their suggestions at the end for "marking the draft". They give examples of underlining, squiggle marks, etc., but with computers, highlighting with colors is also a really fast and effective way to mark drafts. I also really liked how they suggested students to mark, not only elements that were confusing/unclear, but also words or sections that were really effective. I think this dual-view is so crucial to maintain affective support for one another.
