I do two short stories in my U.S. History class (one about an Immigrant experience and one set in World War II) and grading the stories has always been difficult. I have done peer review, but it's always an extra-credit sort of thing. This handout is going to make the editing process a LOT easier. Thank you for sharing this.

Love this peer editing idea. The question format adds clarity that a simple check list may lack for those students who have problems formulating questions.
