Three Great Questions for Reading, Editing and Peer-Editing

Fellow writer, teacher and artist Shasta Grant  asks her writing students to answer three questions following reading and editing an essay:

What surprised you?

What intrigued you?

What disturbed you?

What great, open-ended questions! These are useful for reading comprehension, peer editing and self-editing an essay.

Shasta developed this assignment from the textbook Fieldworking, which she uses in composition writing classes.
