Editing

Writing is a personal process, but editing and peer feedback is an interpersonal one.  The author and the editors must work as a team in order to make meaningful improvements to a piece of writing.
Here are some methods of peer editing:
A. Read it to someone w/o stops and they give overall impression, then again w/ stops and suggestions.
B. Someone reads it with/to you and does a mark-up for mechanics (grammar, spelling, punctuation, sequencing, tense).
C. Someone reads it and then writes what they remember (what stands out) after a 60 second break.
