Now that you’ve read about Peer Reviewing Technical Writing, it’s time to put those concepts to use!
IMPORTANT: You’ll notice that “Page 2” of this week’s reading has you download a sample copy of a peer review letter. You’ll want to refer to that as your template for this worksheet.
Once you have reviewed the peer review sample document in your reading as noted above, check out this crazy sample of a confusing piece of technical writing:

This is the document you’ll be offering peer feedback on (the warhead storage instructions). I will attach the page to reading for reference on how to do it
Use the format of the peer review sample (making up any information that you don’t have, such as names and emails). You’ll notice that the document you’ll be offering suggestions about is short–don’t let that stop you! Remember that you can not only point out areas for improvement, but also note why those areas are problematic and how they can be improved.
Your document should:
· Be 12 pt, Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins, double spaced.
· Include 3-4 suggestions, each a paragraph in length (with a minimum of 3 sentences per paragraph).
