Question: What attitudes help peer response groups help student writers?
Answer: “Groups exhibited trust, support, and helping and these behaviors carried over into other class activities.” MVH McManus. 1986. P. 427.
Comment: Maybe part of the training for peer response needs to be training in a positive attitude. One thing is for sure: peer response groups need to be trained in how to help student writers grow. A negative response attitude won't do it. RayS.
