Peer feedback is a valuable way to boost metacognition, clarify misunderstandings, explore new perspectives, and model intellectual risk-taking. But sometimes students need a structure to help facilitate the conversation.

This is why I developed a 20-minute peer feedback system. Here’s how it works.

In the first phase is the “elevator pitch,” where Partner A explains their process, product, or idea. Meanwhile, Partner B actively listens and might even take notes.

Next, you move to clarifying questions. Here, Partner B initiates by asking clarifying questions without giving any feedback. Partner A then answers those questions.

Afterward, they move into the feedback stage,
where Partner B gives specific feedback. This might be a list of strengths and weaknesses or it might be more open-ended. Partner A listens to the feedback and might take notes.

Next, Partner A paraphrases what they have heard and clarifies any misunderstandings and Partner B actively listens.

Finally, Partner A makes a list of future revisions and again Partner B actively listens.

Note that each phase takes 2 minutes.

When this is done, the partners switch roles for the next ten minutes and go through the same process.
