Eli Review is a web service that supports the coordination and evaluation of peer review activity. Created for writing teachers by writing teachers, Eli provides a revolutionary set of resources for evidence-based teaching of writing in both higher-ed and K-12 classrooms. Bill Hart-Davidson is one of the inventors of Eli. In this session, he will discuss how Eli implements the Vygotskyian concept of peer scaffolding, allowing peer exemplars to emerge from review activity in ways that let students calibrate and course-correct. When review criteria are aligned with learning goals, teachers can use review results to get a real-time picture of where students are doing well and where they may need additional help.
