Peer Critique as a Signature Pedagogy in Writing Studies
Heinert, Jennifer
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v16 n3 p293-304 Jul 2017
In this essay, the author connects research on student learning in writing studies with the theory of signature pedagogies first presented by Shulman in 2005. In particular, the author unpacks how peer critique (also called peer review) develops the habits of mind of the discipline articulated in the "Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing"(Hansen, 2012). By looking through the lens of Shulman's structural definition of signature pedagogies, the author shows how peer critique develops the "habits of head, hand, and heart" of writing studies (Ciccone, 2009).
