Peer-Teaching Writing

http://www.nytimes.com/2003/08/14/technology/circuits/14peer.html (free registration required) describes writing students learning from feedback from their classmates. They post their essays online or circulate them some other way, get feedback from their classmates (oh, and maybe the teacher) and then rewrite it until it's good enough. The biggest problem they have is that a 50-minute class period isn't enough time to do a good job.

I think this might be a really good tool for homeschoolers--they could set up mailing lists or even some type of LJ community and trade feedback. The teachers might be unhappy, though.
