                                               Rhetoric and Composition;
                                Considering Peer to Peer Memo as a Guidance.

I am convinced that writing is more of a passion than a lesson learned. Assignments are completed as dictated but true writing comes from the comforts of one's heart. The need to be a descriptive story teller as a relaxing moment is appreciated is not taught or learned. To have the desire to write a documentation without the promise of monetary proceeds is part of the gift of writing. To have the courage to share your thoughts with other readers and writers without force or fear of judgement. The processes of writing it down for public consumption is encouraged. Correctly used grammar and punctuations bring the attention of the intellects and maintains public focus on the project.

Correctly written projects can be successful with peer’s response. To have someone review your paper with the knowledge of the educator's concerns can increases one's chances of success.   Peer review also guides the writer to consider thinking out side the box by offering suggestions of similar possibilities. The educator may advise that " the purpose of peer to peer memo is to guide the responder to specific places in the essay that the writer is concerned about and also to give some idea of what the writer is trying to accomplish” as they consider the completion of their project.

Reflection is the state of mind. One’s intellect and life's experiences reflect their response. Knowing
 " insight doesn't happen often on a click of the moment like a snap shot but comes in its own time and more slowly and from nowhere but within" ones' active subject at the time. When entering college " students understand the beneficiaries of twelve years' worth of schooling" and will follow the process of the educator to maintain their desired grade.  The different processes will be introduced to students and they will build on what is comfortable to them. A forced process may result in non compliance. Some processes, if assigned consistently, may become standard in some educator’s work plan. The consideration of other processes or curriculums that will engage the students and increase achievement differently may not get introduced.
