It would be nice if you did not refer to "weaknesses" but rather areas/opportunities to improve​ on ....

​There used to be a worksheet that went with this Peer Review guide. I can't find my digital copy. I would love to be able to find it to use in my class.

​The guide is the worksheet - they put their name, date and project on it and then use the guidelines to give/receive feedback. Are you looking for something else?
