One more note on peer review.

Just to restate what we talked about in class on Thursday about revision groups. You should come to class with comments on your classmates drafts. That means both specific notes in the paper itself and a more global endnote. You can do that by printing out the paper and commenting on it that way or by using Word.

If you choose Word, in 2003, click on "Tools" then choose "Track Changes." That should enable that feature. In Work 2007, click on the "Reviewing" tab to get to that track changes button. Let me know if you have trouble with that. Once you're done, you can save your draft (add your initials or name on the end of the filename) and reply to your classmate's post with the revised file as an attachment.

One other problem that people might have is downloading those new .docx files. For some reason, Microsoft Vista has trouble with those--you end up getting a blank file. If that happens, then click on the box next to the message in your group's topic and click on "Create Printable View." Then "Save File." That should download it OK.

Let me know if you have any problems.
