Hi all!

I have been assigned with the task of putting together, and then teaching a
class on peer editing.

The group I am currently working with is quite large (16 writers), and we do
have a standards manual in place. It isn't very comprehensive, but we are in
the process of revising it. Writers do hand their work off to others for
review, but half the time, personal preferences are indicated, or writers are
looking at either content only. format only or grammar/punctuation only. In
other words, the reviews aren't too terrific.

So, I have to put together this class, and I am in need of suggestions, comments
and helpful hints. Or, if anyone knows of any good resources to use (either in
a book or on the net) I am all ears. I have already looked at Joann Hackos book
"Managing Your Documentation Projects" and I have the pamphlet from the STC on
the 5 Levels of Edit. I will also be looking for any papers or anything I can
use during the class that the writers can edit. Know where I can find anything
like that?
