This 30-minute activity is a highly interactive and collaborative way to engage participants critically on a topic by exercising their existing knowledge to review work that is either purposefully inaccurate or in draft form. This activity provides participants with a framework for offering useful feedback on a collaborative piece of work.
We have used a set of financial statements with mistakes put in various pages to give teenagers an insight into the audit process. Also, we have given a draft chapter of a manuscript about the stock market to global capital markets students for their review. On countless occasions, we’ve invited groups to peer review each other’s work appropriately.
- Critically review a document
- Revise content through a different lens
- Examine a theme in a continuous flow (as opposed to the introduce, present, and revise loop in a teaching scenario).
- Show a different structure of the material
- Enable the participants to build an employable skill (i.e. critical analysis)
