Writing Plan and Project Schedule

Reviewing Your Plan with Others


Because most ideas are incompletely thought out when conceived, it is always a good idea to get feedback on what you plan to write. Your intended audience will provide the best feedback, but peer reviewers and your instructor can help you. 

When you ask someone for a review, whether a peer reviewer, a tutor, or an instructor, it’s a good idea to know what you would like that person to review for you. To get the most effective feedback from a reviewer, even at the planning stage, you should list the items you would like the reviewer to check. Here is an example of a list of items one writer prepared for reviewers. The writer used the feedback obtained from this checklist to revise the writing project plan.

Checklist for Reviewer(s)

Remember, this list can be revised to suit your needs and what you would like looked over. The sections presented on this list are often the ones student writers want feedback on.
