I thought the peer review went really well. I found out that people had a lot of good things to say about my paper and they also had some really good points for revision; so that I could make improvements in my essay. I also liked the clicker test activity, I think it gave everyone a pretty good idea of the grade their papers might receive based on their thesis; since the thesis is the whole basis of an essay.
