1. Post a copy of your rough draft of the first paper no later than 11:59 p.m. on Friday. Copy and paste it into the comments box. You do not receive credit for the rough draft if it is posted late, but you may receive feedback that will help you revise it.
2. Choose two drafts that do not yet have a peer review from another student and do a peer review no later than 11:59 p.m. on Sunday. To do the peer review, answer all of the following questions.
