This gave me an opportunity to understand the mistakes conducted in previous papers to avoid repeating them. re-vision was done by reading aloud and getting peer reviews from my friends and classmates. This gave me an opportunity to learn from others as well as learn from my previous mistakes to enhance and sharpen my writing skills.
Reading was done through annotation and skimming. This was important as it gave me an opportunity to directly interact with the studies previously conducted on the same subject. It also improved my understanding and ability to use the library. In the peer-review process, one of my classmates was the most helpful peer-review partner. We conducted the process by exchanging our works and trying to look for mistakes in each other’s work and giving credit for improvement. We also did peer review with my friend my visiting the writing center and evaluating our mistakes.
