How to write a good peer review

Updated on February 23, 2017

Provide appropriate, descriptive feedback to support each of your rubric rankings. Discuss specific examples of effective design and/or delivery in your peer’s presentation.

B. Discuss specific examples of areas in which your peer might improve in future presentations.

II. Reflection

A. Compare your approach in your presentation with that of your peer. (For example, do you persuade by entertaining, informing, or motivating?) Why do different approaches work better for different topics or different presenters or audiences?

B. Evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses in effective design, development, and/or delivery of presentations. Support your evaluation with specific examples.

C. Discuss strengths your peer demonstrated that you could learn from and incorporate in your own presentations.

D. Reflect on ways in which capitalizing on your strengths and working on your weaknesses will positively affect your future career endeavors.

The speech was well performed, but there is still room for improvement. The speaker showed good pronunciation and mostly controlled his apprehension; the speaker seemed a bit nervous and this resulted in longer pauses than were needed in the speech. The speaker used a mostly even tone for most of the speech; this is a speech that would have benefited from different tones during the various parts of the speech. The speaker excelled at using positive body language throughout his speech; he used his body language to gesture, show his visual elements, and enhance his speech. The speaker performed his speech in a logical order that assisted in his persuasion efforts. He began with how people often think of models and then he explained that models are real people with real lives just like everyone else. He concluded by speaking about how people should understand that modeling is a career and that models can do other things as well. The visuals provided by the speaker came in the form of printed images that enhanced his presentation. The visuals on the Victoria Secret model as a model and then in a family setting with her daughter, proved to be appropriate, relevant and engaging. Overall the speaker proved to be engaging and persuasive; however the speaker could work to improve future presentations by including digital visual elements, shortening his pauses, and varying his voice tone when appropriate.

I took a similar approach in my speech to this speaker; as with this speaker I also focused on persuading my audience through informing them about invasive species, much like this speaker informed his audience about sexploitation. Invasive species and sexploitation are both topic that work well with the informing approach to persuasion. Different approaches often work better for other topics, presenters and audiences due to the goal of the presentation, the type of audience, and the personality of the speaker. For instance an introverted speaker with a business class audience would work well with an entertaining style of persuasion as it would be difficult for that speaker to pull off effectively and it would be inappropriate for that audience. After having given my final presentation I feel like I am in a better position to evaluate my own strengths and weaknesses. I have found that my strengths are vocal delivery, presentation design, being able to set an even tone and pace, and the ability to look calm while speaking. For instance I was able to look calm and deliver a good vocal tone and pace for my invasive species speech. I was also able to design my speech so that my slides, pictures, and speech all fit together seamlessly. My weaknesses are displaying active body language and my tendency to not leave my slides up long enough. During my speech I did not move around much and I found it difficult to use gestures when there was nothing to gesture at; I also rushed my slides because I did not want to go over my time limit.

The speaker for the sexploitation speech had very strong body language and printed his visual element so that he could display them while speaking. I feel that these are strengths that I could learn from. The speaker truly did a great job with gesturing and keeping himself from looking too stiff during the presentation. In the future I will try to incorporate some printed visual elements and practice fluid body language when speaking. I need to work on capitalizing on my strengths and working on my weaknesses because I wish work with children. Working with children means I may need to be able to speak in front of people and it is important that my body language is more fluid so that the children would feel more comfortable.

Peer Review

I took a similar approach in my speech to this speaker; as with this speaker I also focused on persuading my audience through informing them about invasive species, much like this speaker informed his audience about the importance of voting. Different approaches often work better for other topics, presenters and audiences due to the goal of the presentation, the type of audience, and the personality of the speaker. For instance an extrovert speaker with a high school audience would work well with an entertaining style of persuasion as it would be easy for that speaker to pull off effectively and it would be appropriate for that audience. I have found that my strengths are vocal delivery, presentation design, being able to set an even tone and pace, and the ability to look calm while speaking.

The speaker did a competent job at speaking extemporaneously, she did not constantly read from her notes and she had good eye contact between glances at her notes. I feel that I could learn from her ability to keep eye contact consistently with the camera. I need to work on capitalizing on my strengths and working on my weaknesses because I wish work with children. Working with children means I may need to be able to speak in front of people and it is important that my body language is more fluid so that the children would feel more comfortable.
