I was very thankful that no one left harsh or disrespectful comments, and that most of Hector's students used the rubric, at least to some degree, when composing their comments for my students.
Now, there were a few students who left comments that were not as helpful...and, well, that was sort of a let-down. I know it is to be expected, but since students were grouped by sites, some of my student groups ended up with feedback from people who did not put much thought into their comments, or did not understand the requirements of the activity. They got absolutely no good feedback from their peers, and I cringe to think about what their reactions to this will be when we meet tonight in class. I will have to take on the work of providing all feedback to these students in order to help them revise their first drafts appropriately.

Things that I would change for next time would be to allow for much more time for students to engage in the shared activities. Though Hector and I are planning a low-stakes activity where my students can evaluate his students' work, there just wasn't enough time to do it as of yet, and I feel that it may seem rushed and almost like an "aside" instead of the important element of this project that it is.
