Be sure to be honest, clear, and concise, referring to specific words and passages from your classmates’ work. Always use constructive language, and avoid negative language; work toward using a tone and spirit of intellectual curiosity and discovery. Your responses to your peers’ writing should include specifics if you are attempting to make a point.
