Abstract [en]

This article focuses on how Swedish lower secondary-level students can improve their writing ability by acting as peer reviewers. It is based on an empirical study carried out in a Swedish EFL classroom, and it addresses the implementation of a teaching unit which included negotiations of a joint criteria list, feedback training, group peer reviewing, and the production of first and final drafts of the written task. Findings suggest that the peer reviewers increased their awareness of audience and genre, and that the content of the reviewed reply letters inspired subsequent revision changes affecting writing at the macro-level in particular.
