Thank you for not being evil this time! LOL I thought that conversating about each individuals essay, after the peer review, was really helpful; that way if someone wrote something on the essay while they were reviewing it and you maybe didn't understand what they were saying, that allowed for each person to elaborate on their reasoning behind any corrections/advice. Nice job!
